Valley Edition - December 27, 2017: Faraday Future, Sanctuary State, Bakersfield Budget Woes

Dec 27, 2017

This week on Valley Edition, we talk to Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims about her thoughts as the county begins to implement SB 54, California's "Sanctuary State" bill. Mims was one of the bill's biggest critics when it made its way through the legislature, and she was worked closely with federal immigration officials in the past. We also talk with Bakersfield City Councilmember Bob Smith about the city's budget gap and about the idea of putting a tax increase in front of voters. And we speak with tech reporter Sean O'Kane from The Verge to learn the latest about Faraday Future, the company that plans to build an advanced electric car at the old Pirelli factory in Hanford.
