News Panel for October 1, 2010

Watch Complete Episode: October 1, 2010 »

California voters were given a clear choice in the debates between Democratic and Republican candidates for governor and U.S Senator. Proposition 20 would expand the power of a Citizens Redistricting Commission in determining congressional districts, while Prop 27 would eliminate the CRC and return the task of redistricting to the Legislature. And executions in the updated death chamber at San Quentin Prison are on hold until next year.

Guests:

  • Carla Marinucci, Reporter, SF Chronicle
  • Josh Richman, Reporter, Oakland Tribune
