We'll talk about it with Emily Green, a reporter for "The Daily Journal" whose been covering the story.

Realigning Services Gov. Jerry Brown proposed moving many services from the state of California back to the county and city level in his draft budget. How will that work and what will it mean for Sacramento County? Capital Public Radio's Ben Adler spoke with Interim Sacramento County Executive Director Steve Szaley about Gov. Brown's realignment plan of state services.
