FROM THIS EPISODE

The LAPD has videotape, but Metropolitan Hospital says it discharged patients where they wanted to go.  Are law enforcement agencies doing the same thing?  Who is scape-goating whom? Plus, Prop 84, another bond issue labeled "water supply and flood control." Would it live up to its promise or serve special interests at public expense?

Producers:
Karen Radziner

Main Topic Proposition 84 13 MIN, 16 SEC

Proposition 84 would raise 5.3 billion dollars in bond money for a host of projects, including improved water quality, flood control, park projects and coastal protection.  Supporters say that 500 conservation groups, business leaders and elected officials believe it’s critically needed.  Opponents say it was put on the ballot by a Sacramento lobbyist whose clients stand to win public money for their pet projects.

Guests:
Fiona Hutton, Campaign spokeswoman for Yes on Proposition 84
Lew Uhler, National Tax Limitation Committee
