FROM THIS EPISODE

Partisan gridlock has stymied progress in California—blamed in part on Assembly members and Senators drawing their own district boundaries to guarantee that some will always be Republican while others are always Democratic. We also talk with a local elected official who was evacuated today from her home in Porter Ranch.

Producers:
Karen Radziner
Andrea Brody

Main Topic Prop 11 and the Politics of Redistricting

Every ten years when there's a new federal census, the state legislature redraws boundaries for the Congress and the State Board of Equalization. They also reapportion their own districts in the Assembly and Senate. Proposition 11 on next month's ballot would take that last task away from the legislators themselves and give it to a board of 14 appointed commissioners.

Kathay Feng, Executive Director, California Common Cause
