Housing & Property Taxes: Prop 15, Prop 19, & Prop 21

This week, KQED's Senior Politics and Government Editor Scott Shafer hosts a conversation about the ways that housing and property taxes, once again, find themselves at the center of debates playing out on the California ballot.

This time, voters face propositions about tax rates on large commercial property owners, the transfer of property tax assessments by vulnerable homeowners (older, disabled, or victims of natural disaster), and whether to allow local governments to expand rent control. KQED housing reporters Molly Solomon and Erin Baldassari join to explore these initiatives and their implications in depth.

Featuring "NPR-style" commentary by Bay Area comedy troupe Killing My Lobster.
