Special Election Series -- Propositions 1D and 1EDownload audio (MP3)
We continue our series on the May 19 special election with in-depth conversations on Propositions 1D and 1E. In the first half hour, we look at how Prop 1D asks voters to decide whether to temporarily shift funds from early childhood education to help make up the budget deficit. In the second half hour we review Prop 1E, which asks voters to decide whether to shift funds from mental health services in the state.
