    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2413H] January 11, 2013 Guest Host: Valerie Coleman Morris.
    NEWS PANEL:
    CALIFORNIA BUDGET - Gov. Jerry Brown's new state spending plan eliminates the deficit in the coming fiscal year, projects future surpluses and increases public education funding.
    STATE PRISONS - 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.
    OIL TANKER ACCIDENT - 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; and Paul Rogers, San Jose Mercury News.
    CONVERSATION WITH ASSEMBLY MEMBER NANCY SKINNER - A new bill to regulate and track ammunition in California is one of several legislative proposals being pushed in the wake of the mass shooting in Newton, CT. On Monday, Assembly member Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley) unveiled a so-called "bullet bill" that would require the licensing of ammunition sellers and the creation of a state justice department registry to track sales.

    Washington Week [#5228H] * With just 10 days until he is sworn into office for a second term, President Obama's cabinet continues to take shape. He nominated former Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE) to replace Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, tapped John Brennan to be the next CIA Director, and picked White House Chief of Staff Jacob Lew to succeed outgoing Treasury Secretary Geithner.
    Hagell, a decorated Vietnam War veteran, is expected to face the toughest confirmation hearings as some of his positions on defense and foreign policy are unpopular with both Democrats and his fellow Republicans. Alexis Simendinger of Real Clear Politics and James Kitfield of National Journal will take a closer look at what President Obama's choices of Hagel and Brennan may say about his second-term national security priorities.
    If confirmed, Jack Lew would start as Treasury Secretary amid a brewing fight on Capitol Hill over whether to raise the debt ceiling. David Wessel of The Wall Street Journal will take a closer look at Lew's budget negotiating experience as former head of the Office of Management and Budget for both Presidents Clinton and Obama.
    * At the White House, Vice President Biden held meetings this week with victim's groups, gun-safety organizations and representatives from groups supporting gun rights including the NRA to discuss measures to curb gun violence in the wake of the Newtown school shooting. Biden is heading up a task force aimed at presenting options to President Obama on ways to strengthen gun laws to prevent future mass shootings. Christi Parsons of the Los Angeles Times will report on what if any common ground may exist between the gun-control and gun-rights groups on this highly-charged issue.

His performance is accompanied by the Bay Area's Gamelan Sekar Jaya, the most acclaimed gamelan orchestra in the United States.
