Capitol legislators are in a mad dash to pass all sorts of legislative remedies before the session ends in mid-September.

Capital Public Radio’s state government reporter Katie Orr, who used to roam the San Diego City Hall beat for KPBS, joined the podcast this week to go over a slew of issues facing state lawmakers.

We got into the prospects of Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez’s bill to further regulate to Civic San Diego, plus the decision to shelf a state minimum wage hike, whether Democrats and Republicans can agree on road and highway funding and how active Gov. Jerry Brown’s veto pen is going to be once the session wraps up.

In the first part of the show, we discussed our recent reporting on school board trustee Marne Foster, the expert police departments rely on when they’re accused of unlawful use of force, the Little League World Series and SDPD Chief Shelley Zimmerman’s switcheroo on body-worn camera footage.
