City Pool Closures Sacramento has closed half of its 13 pools in the past couple years.  Next summer, the city will only have money to operate three city pools with limited hours. Capital Public Radio's Environmental Reporter took a closer look at the situation Today on Insight, we'll talk about all of this with reporter Joe Rubin. Plus, we'll hear from Sacramento City Councilmember Kevin McCarty about how he prioritizes pools and recreation for his district.

Legislature Back in Session The California State Legislature is back in session today. We'll talk with Capitol Reporter Ben Adler about what is coming up next in the legislative session for pensions, regulatory reform and more.
