Legislative Scramble and Growing Latino Power in Sacramento

Hosted by

Governor Brown took it on the chin last night when some fellow Democrats failed to support his initiative to cut gasoline consumption by 50%. It's still not clear if he'll get the money to fix the state's dilapidated roads and freeways. With this year's legislative session ending tomorrow, we update the so-called "right to die" measure and look ahead to next year — when both the Assembly and Senate will be led by Latinos for the first time.

Also, Orange County gets ready for Syrian refugees.
