Happy Halloween!

If you're a lover of small government and you want a real fright this week, join us for a look at some of the scary policies being crafted by bureaucrats in California -- where common sense in government is as hard to find as a ghost and local governments stagger like zombies (cause of death: pension obligations) as residents flee in fear of higher taxes and ghastly regulations.

California-based Watchdog contributor Steve Greenhut joins host Eric Boehm to discuss how local officials are badly mismanaging the water crisis in the Golden State, and how the long-promised high-speed trains connecting San Francisco to Los Angeles are already running behind schedule and over budget, no surprise.

Then, we sit down with Darren McKinney, a spokesman for Americans for Tort Reform, to discuss something really scary: Judicial Hellholes.  He explains how attorneys general and rent-seeking personal injury lawyers have teamed up in many states to go after businesses for huge sums of money -- without regard for the public harm caused, including job losses and declines in tax revenue.

All that, plus a chilling Nanny State of the Week (literally!) and our weekly pack of hellhounds have the news from the states and statehouses on our Picks of the Litter!
