California Bail Referendum-Prop 25, Stem Cell Research-Prop 14 & Affirmative Action-Prop 16


  On this edition of Your Call’s special election series, we are discussing California Propositions 25, 14 and 16.

Proposition 25 would transform how people get out of jail while awaiting trial. Proposition 14 would provide $5.5 billion in general obligation bonds for the state's stem cell research institute and make changes to the institute's governance structure and programs. Proposition 16 would restore affirmative action in public schools and government offices.
