This fall's elections promise to effect sweeping change both in Washington and closer to home. California voters will be asked to consider measures aimed at rectifying the looming budgetary crisis (including Governor Jerry Brown's proposed tax increases), campaign finance reform, redistricting, the three-strikes rule, revoking the death penalty and much more. What challenges face the state as we head into the election? If passed, what are the implications of these proposed measures? We're bringing together representatives from some of California's most eminent institutions to shed some light on these issues.
