Can it afford not to? Also, a congressional candidate in Orange County is under investigation for allegedly warning Latinos to stay away from the polls.

Making News OC Immigrants Get Letters Saying They Can't Vote 3 MIN, 34 SEC

A Republican candidate for Congress in Orange County says he was not the one who mailed a letter in Spanish, saying that it's illegal to vote in a federal election if you're an "immigrant." In fact, naturalized immigrants are allowed to vote. The irony is that Tan Nguyen, who's challenging Democrat Loretta Sanchez, is himself a naturalized citizen.

Main Topic Do Bond Measures Really Benefit California? 25 MIN, 11 SEC

Was Hurricane Katrina a wake-up call for California? Proposed by Governor Schwarzenegger, Proposition 1E was put on the ballot by the Democrat-controlled legislature. The $4.1 billion bond issue to protect the state from devastation by water is the last of a four-measure bond package that would increase state debt by $37 billion. Prop 1B would raise $20 billion for transportation; Prop 1C would mean $2.9 billion for housing; Prop 1D raises another $10.4 billion for education.  Can California afford to pass the latest bond package in state history, adding $40 billion in new debt, plus roughly that much in interest over the years? Can it afford not to?
