Friday, KPBS’s Editor’s Roundtable featured CEO Scott Lewis, Michael Smolens, government editor for the San Diego Union-Tribune, and David Rolland, editor of San Diego CityBeat.

On the agenda: California’s budget problems and the potential for new state revenue.

Scott Lewis, speaking about state Republicans’ attempts to block the governor’s plans:

For the rest, download the audio here, read the early transcript or listen on KPBS’s site.

Update: Here are the other segments from the show: new regulations for medical marijuana dispensaries and the City Council’s aggressiveness on budget discussions.
