FROM THIS EPISODE

Inglewood voters may decide whether an NFL stadium should be built in their city as soon as this June. Despite complaints about noise, traffic and the environment, it took just three weeks to gather more than twice the signatures needed to qualify for the ballot. That doesn't mean it's not highly contentious.

Also, if political gerrymandering makes a comeback in Arizona, could it happen here? Three former California governors weigh in.

Prominent Californians Weigh In on Arizona Redistricting Case 7 MIN, 17 SEC

For decades, the California legislature was accused of abusing its power to draw Congressional district boundaries. Voters approved an independent commission in 2008, and its work went to effect two years ago. Now, the US Supreme Court is considering whether a similar commission in Arizona violates the Constitution. Some prominent Californians are worried.
