What's the Republican Plan for California's Budget Mess?

Hosted by

There's barely a week until Governor Brown's legislative deadline to give voters a chance to decide if taxes should be extended to avoid doubling his $12.5 billion in budget cuts.  Even some business groups want Republicans to at least help it get on the ballot. We hear from both sides. Also, all of New Zealand took two minutes out today to remember the Christchurch earthquake one week ago. Do occupants of some Los Angeles buildings know what they're in for? On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, Republican Governors are challenging the benefits won by public-sector unions, but a poll out today suggests a possible backlash.  What would that mean for Governors like New Jersey's Chris Christie, who's made national headlines by vilifying teachers' unions?
