This week on PBS SoCaL, we delve into the decision to permanently close down the San Onofre nuclear power plant, leaving open questions about who will pay for its multibillion-dollar decommissioning and the fate of investigations into alleged wrongdoing by Southern California Edison.

We discuss these topics and more:

  • Supervisor John Moorlach deciding not to run for governor after seeing dim prospects for a Republican candidate.
  • County supervisors exempting themselves from a 5-percent across-the-board budget cut at the county.
  • Reports that a gas explosion at Santa Ana Valley High School this week came after school administrators received complaints about strong gas smells coming from the building.
  • Anaheim City Council members turning down a recommendation to let voters decide on council elections by districts amid complaints that its current at large voting system disenfranchises Latinos.

Voice of OC’s weekly news segments are broadcast on PBS SoCaL Wednesdays and Fridays at 5 p.m.
