Insight: Foster Youth Privacy / Kings Update / Capitol Steps / Steve Barkett


Foster Youth Privacy A bill that would make some foster child court proceedings open to the public is facing criticism from youth advocates. Today on Insight, we'll talk about transparency and accountability versus privacy when it comes to foster youth. Ed Howard is the Senior Counsel at the Children's Advocacy Institute, which supports Assembly Bill 73 sponsored by legislator Mike Feuer, D-Los Angeles, and Chantel Johnson is the Legislative and Policy Coordinator for California Youth Connection, which opposes the bill. Johnson is also a former foster youth. 

Kings Update NBA officials continue to look into Mayor Johnson's claims that Sacramento is a viable city for a professional basketball team regardless of whether the Kings stay or not. We'll get an update from sports writer and blogger Bill Bradley on all that's happened in the last week and what might happen next. Bradley writes the 27x7 blog.

Capitol Steps The political satire group Capitol Steps is coming to Sacramento. They're celebrating their 30th anniversary. We'll talk about the group with Elaina Newport, a founding cast member and co-author of their material.

The Capitol Steps perform at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 27th at The Crest Theatre, 1013 K St., Sacramento.
