Coming up on Forum:
The California secretary of state oversees elections, voter registration and campaign finance reporting, among other things. We'll meet the two candidates running for the position: Pete Peterson, a Republican from Pepperdine University's School of Public Policy; and Alex Padilla, a Democrat and California state senator.
Our California Election Watch 2014 series continues with a debate on Proposition 46. The initiative would raise the ceiling on awards in medical malpractice lawsuits and allow for random alcohol and drug testing of doctors, among other provisions. Prop. 46 pits trial lawyers, who support the measure, against doctors and insurers who oppose it. We'll talk with representatives from both sides.
