Facing the prospect of deep budget cuts and hundreds of layoffs, the San Jose City Council is considering Mayor Chuck Reed's request to declare a fiscal state of emergency. The declaration would give Reed the authority to amend labor contracts and pension deals. But union leaders and other critics say the move is illegal.

Guests:

Sam Liccardo, San Jose City Council member and chair of the Transportation and Environment Committee

Ash Kalra, San Jose City Council member

Robert Sapien, president of the San Jose Firefighters IAFF Local 230

Chuck Reed, mayor of San Jose

Marcia Fritz, president of the California Foundation for Fiscal Responsibility
