FROM THIS EPISODE

It’s lawyers versus insurance companies on the November ballot--with Obamacare in the background. That’s according to TV commercials for and against Proposition 45. We’ll go behind the slogans and catchwords with supporters and opponents of a measure that could impact your pocket book.

Also: CicLAvia will roll into East LA for the first time this Sunday, clearing busy streets for bicycles and pedestrians to go past murals, Victorian mansions and a historic shul. Will discovery of an attractive neighborhood lead to gentrification?

Health Insurance Rates: Who's The Decider? 16 MIN, 42 SEC

Prop 45 is on the November ballot, just over 4 weeks away. California’s elected Insurance Commissioner controls what you pay for insurance on your home and your car. Proposition 45 would give him the same power to regulate some health insurance.
