David Bahnsen (The Bahnsen Group) and Will Swaim (Cal Policy Center) discuss whether recent stock-market volatility means anything for California’s precarious finances. Also: Columbus statue sails out of San Jose City Hall, the meaning for California politics of Donald Trump’s latest DACA proposal, and state treasurer (and gubernatorial candidate) John Chiang’s plan to create an government-run bank for the state’s burgeoning weed industry.

Intro music provided by Metalachi, the LA-based mariachi/metal band.
