From “sanctuary state” legislation to highly debated housing bills, there is a lot to vote on before Friday in Sacramento.

As reported by Los Angeles Daily News, these and other proposals need to be decided on before the end of the week, or else they’ll have to wait until January. That’s made for a busy week at the state capital, and bills with the highest stakes attached are California’s housing package: SB 2, SB 3 and SB 35. There’s also SB 17, which aims to control prescription drug costs and SB 34, or the “sanctuary state” bill which would restrict how much communication is permitted between state law enforcement and federal immigration officers. So what other bills are set to a vote this week? Larry speaks to KQED’s Guy Marzorati to find out more.
