News Panel: Affordable Care Act Ruling, Immigration Reform, Oakland Army Base, and more

Next week, the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to make its highly anticipated decision on the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. A reversal of all or part of President Obama's health care law could affect billions of dollars in federal subsidies for California's Medi-Cal expansion and the 2014 planned roll-out of the state's health insurance exchange. The Obama administration's new immigration policy would halt deportation of thousands of undocumented immigrants who arrived in the country as children, including an estimated 350,000 in California. Supporters say the President's action was long-overdue and could boost his election-year chances in some swing states, but Republican leaders questioned the policy of granting work visas to illegal immigrants while young Americans face record unemployment. On Tuesday, Oakland's City Council approved the first phase of a billion dollar transformation of a former army base into a state-of-the-art cargo distribution center. It's been heralded as one of the largest development projects in Oakland's history and is expected to create thousands of jobs, half of which must be set aside for local residents.
