News Panel: California braces for trigger cuts, a judge decides the fate of Barry Bonds, and more

Watch Complete Episode: December 16, 2011 »

Californians are bracing for $1 billion in automatic trigger cuts to public programs after the Department of Finance found revenues fell short of projections. Among the hardest hit programs were higher education, MediCal and services for the elderly and disabled. K-12 was spared the worst case scenario, but still suffered a major cut in school transportation. A federal judge decides the fate of former Giants slugger Barry Bonds. Prosecutors want Bonds to serve 15 months for obstruction of justice in the BALCO scandal involving the alleged use of performance-enhancing drugs. Also, we look at the impact of Bay Area sports teams trading cities. Congress passed a pipeline safety bill this week, but critics say that it doesn't include provisions that would prevent a blast like the one that occurred in San Bruno last year.
