News Panel: Budget Talks, Bay Bridge in Limbo, and America's Cup Safety

Watch Complete Episode: May 31, 2013 »

As the June 15 state budget deadline approaches, Gov. Jerry Brown and lawmakers are split over what to do with unexpected revenue. Gov. Brown wants a general fund cushion, while his fellow Democrats are vying to restore cuts to social programs. California's new fiscal year begins July 1.

Officials now have until July 10 to determine whether the Bay Bridge will make its scheduled Labor Day weekend opening. Questions remain over how to repair broken rods on the new eastern span, while Gov. Brown has called for a system-wide review of Caltrans.

Is the America's Cup too dangerous? After sailor Andrew "Bart" Simpson died during a practice run with his team, Sweden's Artemis Racing, new safety regulations aim to prevent and address capsizes. For now, it is unclear which teams will race in the upcoming high-stakes competition.
