FROM THIS EPISODE

Health care providers promise a massive rally tomorrow in Sacramento to pressure Governor Brown to restore reimbursements for services to poor people. We hear about that and get a preview of what the roll-out of Obamacare is beginning to look like in California. Also, the former "Gangster Mayor" of Compton, Omar Bradley, wants his old job back — although the DA's office might prosecute him again. We hear from him and the young city planner opposing him in tomorrow's election.

The US imports billions of pounds of fish, vegetables, mushrooms and garlic from China — a country infamous for food-safety problems. Is China cleaning up its act… or do we need to worry?

Main Topic The Changing Face of Healthcare Delivery in California 17 MIN, 54 SEC

ww130603CA_Covered.jpgIt'll be four months before anybody knows what the President's Affordable Care Act will really look like in California, but it's beginning to take shape. It might turn out to be less expensive than predicted — if enough of those who don't have insurance decide to sign up instead of paying a $95 penalty. Meanwhile, healthcare providers promise a massive rally tomorrow in Sacramento to pressure Governor Brown to restore reimbursements for services to poor people. We hear about that and get a preview of what the roll-out of Obamacare is beginning to look like in California.

Reporter's Notebook Mayor's Run-off Election in Compton 8 MIN, 47 SEC

In early days of rap music, Omar Bradley was sometimes known as the "Gangster Mayor" of Compton. He served from 1993 until 2001, when he was defeated for re-election. He did prison time on corruption charges before a judge overturned his conviction — and now he's running for another term.  Saul Gonzalez talked with Bradley and his young challenger, Aja Brown.
