Podcast: Sue Me Summer

Comments Off

Now that the budget is wrapped and the Legislature has gone on summer vacation, things are all said and done in Sacramento, right?

Not so fast.

This week's Capital Notes Podcast examines the soon-to-come battles over the budget and its political ramifications. Yes, some of those are lawsuits; but as Anthony York of the Los Angeles Times and I discuss, it's also a good time to watch the 2012 election issues brewing.

We also discuss the home stretch of the independent redistricting effort... which also looks like a sure bet for legal action.

At least courtrooms have air conditioning, eh? There are worse places to be during the summer heat.
