Gov. Jerry Brown has an impressive streak going when it comes to calling most of the shots in crafting a state budget. Can he keep it going?
This week's California Politics Podcast looks at the budget demands of Brown's fellow Democrats, demands that hinge on more optimistic predictions of state tax revenues in the fiscal year to come.
We also discuss the potential impact for the Golden State of a case headed to the U.S. Supreme Court that challenges the notion of "one person, one vote" when it comes to drawing political maps.
I'm joined by KQED News' Marisa Lagos, while our friend Anthony York will return next week.
