News Panel: California Budget, State Prisons, Oil Tanker Accident, and more

Watch Complete Episode: January 11, 2013 »

Gov. Jerry Brown's new state spending plan eliminates the deficit in the coming fiscal year, projects future surpluses and increases public education funding.

Declaring an end to the prison overcrowding crisis, Gov. Brown called for federal authorities to return oversight to the state. Meanwhile, a 2011 court-ordered population cap of about 110,000 prisoners has not yet been met.

The pilot of an oil tanker that sideswiped a Bay Bridge tower Monday had a record of other accidents. While no oil appears to have been spilled, the collision was a stark reminder of the disastrous 2007 Cosco Busan accident, and raised concerns over the environmental impact of massive tankers on the San Francisco Bay.

Guests:

  • Josh Richman, Bay Area News Group
  • Paul Rogers, San Jose Mercury News
  • Michael Montgomery, Michael Montgomery, KQED & Center for Investigative Reporting
