News Panel: SF's homeless problem, safety concerns over the Bay Bridge, and more
Homeless families and advocates call on San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee to open vacant public housing units for an increasing number of homeless families. Nearly 2,200 of the city's public school students are homeless. A recent investigation by the Sacramento Bee into falsified Caltrans inspection reports raises questions over the safety of the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge. Voters may get another chance to voice their support or opposition to California's three-strikes sentencing law, which puts offenders in prison for 25 years to life after their third felony violation.
