    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5319H] * The off-year election results from around the country have Republicans and Democrats looking for hints of any trends that may carry through to 2014 and 2016. In the Virginia gubernatorial race, former Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe narrowly defeated tea-party favorite Ken Cuccinelli who tried to make the election a referendum on the Affordable Care Act. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) easily won re-election setting up an expected 2016 presidential bid. And the voters of New York City elected the first Democratic mayor in two decades. John Dickerson of Slate Magazine and CBS News will examine the "takeaways" of Tuesday's outcome for Democrats, Republicans and tea party supporters leading into the 2014 congressional midterms and the 2016 presidential race.
    * President Obama continues to try and reassure wary Americans - including some Democratic lawmakers - that the long-term benefits of the Affordable Care Act outweigh the initial problems with the health insurance rollout. Christi Parsons of Tribune News will report on the White House strategy to get the healthcare website repaired while also educating the public about the president's signature legislation amidst a continuing barrage of criticism.
    * Ed O'Keefe of The Washington Post will report on the political battle on Capitol Hill to pass historic legislation outlawing workplace discrimination against gay, bisexual and transgender people in America despite approval by the Senate this week.

    KQED NEWSROOM [#104H] Sunnyvale Adopts New Gun Law and Tech Companies Reshape San Francisco
    Sunnyvale Mayor Tony Spitaleri on New Gun Law
    The small South Bay city of Sunnyvale drew national attention this week when voters approved Measure C. The new law, which goes into effect on January 1, requires gun owners to report missing firearms within 48 hours and to keep guns locked up when not in use. It also prohibits ammunition magazines holding more than 10 rounds. The National Rifle Association has threatened to sue. Scott Shafer sat down with Sunnyvale Mayor Tony Spitaleri to find out what inspired him to push for the law and how the city is responding to the NRA.

    Tech Companies Reshaping San Francisco
    Twitter's IPO may have Wall Street a-twitter, but the San Francisco-based tech company's foray into public trading also drew protesters concerned about gentrification in the city. With Yelp breaking ground on new headquarters downtown and Google building a barge on the San Francisco Bay, is the tech industry's success reshaping the Bay Area?

    Lake Tahoe Development Battle
    The Sierra Club and other environmental groups have filed arguments in a lawsuit against a controversial new plan that governs development around Lake Tahoe. The lake's iconic blue waters have lost 20 feet of clarity since 1968 due to uncontrolled urbanization in the '50s and '60s. Strict regulations and a $1.6 billion investment in the lake have helped make some gains in clarity, but environmentalists fear that the new rules could reverse the trend.
