News Panel for October 29, 2010
Tuesday is Election Day and the final push is on to win the hearts, minds and votes of Californians. The future of California's global warming laws will be decided with the outcome of Proposition 23, while Prop. 21 would provide additional funding for state parks. Housing foreclosures continue to plague California communities, and some homeowners are suing over faulty mortgage modifications. And the San Francisco Giants' amazing journey to the World Series brings happiness and hope to the Bay Area in the midst of the heated political battles and economic hard times.
