From The Washington Examiner:

No red scare

Ian Adams for the R Street Institute: The Cold War ended decades ago, but vestiges of the conflict still surround us. In the California legislature, Assemblyman Rob Bonta, D-Oakland, has introduced a bill that seeks to bring one chapter of that history to a close.

The legislation would replace a nearly 80-year-old prohibition that barred members of the Communist Party or individuals who otherwise advocated communist ideals from employment by the state of California. In its place, the bill would impose an ideologically neutral prohibition on employing anyone who actively seeks the forceful or violent overthrow of the government of the United States.
