On the Nov. 6 edition of the Reporter Roundup, KPCC reporters and a guest discuss updates on election results thus far, including Measure J, proposition 16, and the Los Angeles Unified School District board, plus California’s shift away from punitive justice.
Measure J asked L.A. County voters if they wanted to dedicate 10% of the county’s budget to criminal justice reform programs. Emily Guerin discusses what will happen now that it passed.
