October 15, 2010


News Panel for October 15, 2010

Election campaign activity heats up with a spirited debate between the gubernatorial hopefuls, an onslaught of media ads and high-profile national politicians making appearances of support. Our examination of the ballot measures continues: Proposition 22 would prevent the state government from raiding local funds, while Prop. 24 would repeal recent corporate tax provisions that allow businesses to shift losses to prior tax years. And a federal judge rules the "don't ask, don't tell" policy on gay men and women in the military is unconstitutional.
