2014 Ballot Measures Explainer Videos

We partnered with the Sacramento Public Library and the Center for California Studies to explain the 2014 fall ballot measures in a non-partisan way.  We were lucky enough to get THE Legislative Analyst's Office experts to explain each one. Below are the links, first to the entire event, and then to each measure individually.  Please share with anyone who is confused about how to vote!

The whole event -- all six measures(video).    A Transcript, generously done by Sacramento Library Intern Justine Barnes is here.

Prop. 1: Water Bond

Prop 2: Rainy Day Fund

Prop. 45:  Insurance Commissioner and Insurance Rates

Prop. 46: Medical Malpractice Cap Increase, Drug Database Checking, Drug/Alcohol Testing of Physicians

Prop. 47: Criminal Sentences Reduced

Prop. 48: Tribal Gaming Compact
