This Week: News Panel: SF's homeless problem, safety concerns over the Bay Bridge, and more | PBS

Duration: 16:50

Homeless families and advocates call on San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee to open vacant public housing units for an increasing number of homeless families. Nearly 2200 of the city's public school students are homeless. A recent investigation by the Sacramento Bee into falsified Caltrans inspection reports raises questions over the safety of the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge. Voters may get a second chance to voice their support or opposition to California's three-strikes sentencing law, which puts offenders in prison for 25 years to life after their third felony violation. Guests: Jill Tucker, San Francisco Chronicle Tom Vacar, KTVU News Marisa Lagos, San Francisco Chronicle
