FROM THIS EPISODE

It’s another year of record spending, but Prop 89 claims it would put an end to the era of Big Money in California politics.  It would reduce contributions and raise public funds to finance election campaigns. Also, cuts in security funding for the ports of LA and Long Beach.

Main Topic Proposition 89: California Politics without Big Money? 18 MIN, 45 SEC

November's elections will likely set new records for campaign spending, led by the race for Governor and 13 ballot propositions. One of them promises to change all that by setting limits on corporate contributions. Proposition 89 promises to take the big money out of politics with spending limits and $200 in public financing of campaigns for state offices. Would spending reform limit special interest influence?  Would public finance mean tax money for negative campaigns?  We'll hear the pros and cons.
