this episode is no longer available

California voters come Nov. 8 will have to sort through the longest list of statewide propositions imaginable. The confusing array of public policy choices includes, the future of the death penalty, a criminal sentence measure aimed at cutting the state prison population by giving inmates a chance for earlier parole, a collection of new tough gun laws and a slew of other measures on the November Ballot.

On today’s show we continue with part two of our conversation examining propositions/measures and local initiatives, on this 2016 election ballot. Our round-table of experts include individuals committed to informing community and helping us all wade through the maze of policy and legal jargon.
