Last week, a federal judge granted bankruptcy protection to the city of Stockton, California. This week, the city of San Bernardino is hoping for the same outcome. 

In the meantime, San Bernardino's fire chief Paul Drasil has resigned, and he isn't the only city official to call it quits. The city's finance director and city manager have also resigned since the city began seeking bankruptcy last August. 

Joining us with more on his departure and San Bernardino's pending bankruptcy is Ryan Hagen, reporter with the San Bernardino Sun.
