TIME: 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

Should progressives support Jerry Brown's tax initiative, Prop. 30? Why are some death row prisoners opposed to repealing the death penalty (Prop. 34)? Shouldn't everyone be supporting the anti- Human Trafficking proposition (Prop. 35)? Requiring genetically engineered foods to be labelled (Prop. 37) is simply obvious, right?

The discussion will focus primarily on the state propositions -- a listing of these eleven propositions is at: http://www.sos.ca.gov/elections/ballot-measures/qualified-ballot-measures.htm
