    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2404H] October 26, 2012 Guest Host: Al Letson
    There's a lot riding on the November 6 election for California's once prized public education system. With $ 6 billion in trigger cuts looming due to the state budget deficit, two competing tax measures on the ballot propose to temporarily help fill the gap. Gov. Jerry Brown's Proposition 30 would raise the state sales tax a quarter cent and income tax on those earning more than $ 250,000 annually. Competing Proposition 38, sponsored by millionaire attorney Molly Munger, would increase income tax on a sliding scale for those earning at least $7316 a year.
    We devote the full program to looking at how public education is financed in California, and hear from educators, students, policy experts and politicians about how we got here, and what solutions might provide a way out. < br />Studio Guests:
    Darrell Steinberg, California State Senate President pro Tem
    Arun Ramanathan, The Education Trust-West
    Jill Tucker, San Francisco Chronicle

    The battle for Senate control rests in a few states. Regardless of who wins, a divided Congress could be one of the biggest problems facing the next president. We will take a closer look at the tossup states that could shift the balance of power.
