Insight: CEQA Bills / Environmental Groups on CEQA Bills / Capitol Chat / Keith Lowell Jensen


CEQA Bills The legislature passed three bills in the last 36 hours of this year's session that many environmental groups say will weaken protections of The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). We'll speak with Senator Alex Padilla about his bill, SB 292, which will expedite the proposed first-ever LEED certified Football Stadium in downtown Los Angeles through the environmental review process.  Some environmental groups support the so-called "NFL Stadium Bill," while others think it's a slippery slope to start making exceptions to environmental review. 
 
CEQA Supporters The legislature passed three bills in the final day of session this year that are causing some inner conflicts with environmental groups.  On one hand, the bills streamline "green" projects, on the other hand, the bills alter the judicial review process established by the California Environmental Quality Act.  We'll speak with the director of the Sierra Club of California, Kathryn Phillips, and a senior attorney with the Natural Resources Defense Council, David Pettit
 
Capitol Chat We'll take a look back at the stories and issues in the news from California's Capitol reporter Ben Adler. He'll bring sound bites and analysis to the discussion and let us know what's happening at the capitol.
 
Keith Lowell Jensen Comedian Keith Lowell Jensen will be at The Sacramento Comedy Spot tonight to celebrate the release of his new CD and DVD, "Cats Made of Rabbits."  Recorded in front of a sold out crowd at The Sacramento Comedy Spot, "Cats Made of Rabbits" features the comedian using his usual schizophrenic approach to take the listener from Jensen's personal stories to his take on marijuana laws, homophobia, animal rights and of course religion.
