KQED 9: Fri, Sep 21, 2012 -- 7:30 PM

PROP. 32 - Proposition 32 on the November ballot would prohibit employee paycheck deductions from being used for political purposes. Opponents of the ban, including the California Teachers Union, say it is an unfair attempt to restrict their influence, while not placing limitations on spending by wealthy business interests or individuals.
SAN JOSE CRIME - San Jose, long one of the safest large cities in California, has recently experienced a spike in crime. This week, Police Chief Chris Moore announced his unexpected resignation in January, after two years on the job.
PUBLIC POWER FOR SAN FRANCISCO - The San Francisco Board of Supervisors has given approval to pave the way for clean public power in San Francisco. Residents would be automatically enrolled in the plan and charged a higher rate than for PG&E, unless they opt out. A similar system is currently in place in Marin County.
HETCH HETCHY BALLOT MEASURE - If approved by San Francisco voters, Measure F would begin a planning phase for draining and restoring the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir to park land. It is supported by the Sierra Club and other environmental groups. Opponents, including San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee and Senators Boxer and Feinstein, say it is a necessary water source and that the region cannot afford the costs.
Guests: John Myers, KXTV; Robert Solanga, San Jose Mercury News; Tom Vacar, KTVU; and Paul Rogers, San Jose Mercury News.

KQED 9: Fri, Sep 14, 2012 -- 7:30 PM

PENSION REFORM: As the legislative session winds down, Governor Jerry Brown has been sent hundreds of bills, approving an overhaul of the state's underfunded pension system by changing retirement benefits for new employees. Brown is also making his case to voters for approval of his tax measure on the November ballot.
"AMAZON TAX": On September 15, the so-called Amazon tax kicks in, requiring hundreds of online retailers to charge sales tax to California consumers. It is estimated to boost tax revenue in the state by as much as $300 million annually, and may set the stage for federal legislation.
Guests: Josh Richman, Bay Area News Group; and Michelle Quinn, Politico.
SAN FRANCISCO MAYOR ED LEE INTERVIEW: Mayor Lee joins Belva Davis to discuss his first year in office along with November ballot measures and his role in President Obama's re-election campaign.
AFGHAN CULTURE IN LITTLE KABUL: In the three decades since the 1979 Soviet invasion, several waves of refugees from war-torn Afghanistan have sought a new life in the US. Northern California is home to the largest population of Afghans in the country, thousands of whom have settled in the Bay Area. As Scott Shafer discovers, the area of Fremont known as "Little Kabul" has become a cultural haven for a growing number of Afghan artists and musicians.
