Governing California.

The Pomona Student Union says "Overcrowded prisons, declining funds for public education, and budgetary disaster are just a selection of issues that plague the state of California today. As the most populous state and greatest economic contributor to the United States, California has often served as a model for other states considering reform in areas ranging from energy to education. Though there have been many attempts to rectify the California budget, the deficit still stands at an estimated $20 billion. Are California’s problems unique to California? How did the state get into this situation? Would a constitutional convention affect California’s governance and operations? Or is California simply ungovernable?"

On February 16th, leading experts Dan Walters and Thad Kousser, along with former California governor Gray Davis, participated in a panel discussion to explore these issues.
