Insight: Capitol Chat: Proposition 31 / Rural Voices / Voices of Light / Sound Advice: Jazz


 
 
Capitol Chat: Proposition 31 Proposition 31 was designed to make state government more transparent and efficient, but its opponents say it will do the opposite.  The multi-faceted initiative includes provisions that would give local governments more freedom to spend state and federal money and it would grant California's governor authority to cut the state's budget in a fiscal emergency.  It also establishes a two-year legislative budget cycle and requires lawmakers to balance revenues and expenditures.  Capital Public Radio's State Government Reporter Amy Quinton has been speaking with supporters and opponents of Proposition 31 and joins us to explain what people like or don't like about it.  We'll also speak with the Director of Sacramento State University's Center for California Studies and former Analyst for the Legislative Analyst's Office Steve Boilard about the costs and benefits of the two-year budget cycle that would be implemented if Proposition 31 passed.

Voices of Light If you're a film buff or just a fan of the Golden Age of Hollywood, you've probably seen the 1928 French-produced film "The Passion of Joan of Arc."  The silent film is considered a landmark of early cinema for its writing and the performance by Maria Falconetti.  Now you can see the film like never before.  University of the Pacific is showing a digitally restored edition of the film accompanied by a live orchestra that will be performing a contemporary score.  We're speaking with composer Richard Einhorn about the score he created for the film and the ensuing event "Voices of Light: The Passion of Joan of Arc," which will be shown in UOP's Faye Spanos Concert Hall Saturday, October 20.
