Insight: Proposition 38 / Sandy-Related Travel Delays / Haunted Sacramento / Kushman by the Bottle


 
 
Proposition 38 Proposition 38 would raise taxes on most Californians by about $54 a year to pay for local schools. California Senate President Pro-tem Darrell Steinberg and Former Superintendent of Public Instruction Delaine Eastin laid out their arguments for and against the initiative in the opinion pages of The Sacramento Bee earlier this month.  Steinberg says Prop 38 will fund schools but will require billions of dollars in trigger cuts to other state programs to balance the budget.  Eastin says California's per-pupil spending is among the worst in the nation and rival tax measure Prop 30 will only maintain the status-quo.  The two join us in our studio to debate the initiative and explain what California needs most.

Check a flight's status HERE.
