    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.

    Moyers & Company [#201H] Paul Krugman On Why Jobs Come First * Our current obsession with slashing the deficit is getting in the way of real work that needs to be done to preserve both our economy and our democracy. It's all about jobs, says Paul Krugman, who joins Bill Moyers this week. The Nobel Prize-winning economist and New York Times columnist explains why our top priority should be getting America back to work - if only Congress and the President would stop throwing distractions in the way. Krugman's latest book, End This Depression Now!, is a warning of the fiscal perils ahead and a prescription to safely avoid them.
    * Later on the show, Bill explains how last week's fiscal cliff deal gave tens of billions in tax breaks to Wall Street and corporations - what even The Wall Street Journal calls a "crony capitalist blowout."
