Hosted by

Governor Brown is pushing hard for Proposition 1 on Tuesday’s ballot — $7.5 billion for water projects, including new dams and reservoirs. It won’t help with the current drought. What would it mean when things get back to normal — if they ever do? We hear both sides.

Also, historically, LA was a non-union town, but now local politicians depend on support from organized labor. We talk with a woman who helped make that happen: Maria Elena Durazo, who’s moving on.
