News Panel: Mirkarimi plea deal, BART extension to San Jose, and more

Watch Complete Episode: March 16, 2012 »

Gov. Jerry Brown strikes a deal with backers of the so-called "millionaires" tax measure to combine efforts to put one tax initiative before voters on the November ballot. Speculation about San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi's future continues after his guilty plea to a misdemeanor charge of false imprisonment and Mayor Ed Lee considers whether to file charges of official misconduct and remove Mirkarimi from office. The long awaited BART extension to San Jose is expected to open in 2016, with construction planned to begin next month. A $900 million federal funding agreement will provide two stations for the region's largest city.
