Roundtable: SDG&E Choppers Grounded, Prison Realignment & Local Tribe Standoff

Above: Prisoners lay on their bunks at California State Prison in Los Angeles County, located in the city of Lancaster. (Eds. note: The Department of Corrections said it no longer uses triple bunks in its facilities.)

Aired 9/30/11 on KPBS Midday Edition.

We look at this week's grounding of SDG&E helicopters working on the Sunrise Powerlink project, prison realignment affecting San Diego and a local tribe standoff over a lease.


This week state regulators grounded SDG&E helicopters working on the Sunrise Powerlink project east of San Diego after two accidents went unreported. Prison realignment is becoming a reality, we find out how it affects San Diego and a local tribe is pushing to get a private military contractor off their land.
