Expert Panel Discussion: Understanding Props 30 and 38

In October, AARP and the League of Women Voters held an event to discuss four of the 11 propositions -- all which are related to money and taxes -- on the November 6, 2012 California ballot. Panelists were Dr. Steven Wallace, Chair at UCLA's School of Public Health; Dr. Karen Lincoln, Associate Professor at USC's School of Social Work; and Tom Carson, League of Women Voters of Los Angeles. KCET's Val Zavala moderated.

Whether to vote on Proposition 30 or Proposition 38 is a big question for lots of voters in California. Both are taxes and both have a major educational angle. In this discussion, moderator Val Zavala goes over the basics and throws it over to the panel to discuss in depth.
