audio

Under newly-signed AB 392, law enforcement officers may only use lethal force where it's "necessary." The bill's author, Shirley Weber (D - San Diego), and civil rights attorney and UCLA clinical professor Lisa Holder (L/O of Lisa Holder) detail the new standard.

Plus Sacramento correspondent Malcolm Maclachlan describes the last flurry of bills to pass the California legislature, including ones regulating arbitration, the gig economy, vaccines, sexual harassment, and college athletes.
