News Panel: The latest on Gov. Brown's State of the State address, Ross Mirkarimi, and more
Gov. Jerry Brown gives the annual State of the State address, taking his message to lawmakers and voters. He calls for higher taxes, more budget cuts, and increased spending on public works projects. Federal Judge Thelton Henderson tells California officials to prepare for the elimination of the prison receivership, citing it unnecessary as low level offenders are being shifted to county jails due to realignment. Embattled San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi pleads not guilty to three misdemeanor charges related to domestic abuse allegations and refuses calls for him to step aside.
