Fed up with partisan gridlock and a dysfunctional state government, California voters have taken matters into their own hands in recent years, passing ballot measures that have created a top two primary, enhanced legislative term limits and reformed the way legislative and congressional districts are drawn. But some say that further changes are needed, including stricter limits on and increased disclosure of campaign fundraising, reforms to the state's ballot initiative process, and shrinking the size of individual districts. Are further reforms necessary? Or should we wait and see if this first round of changes can make California's government work again? Join us as a panel of experts examines the California political system, and considers potential changes to the way the Golden State governs itself.
