One year after returning to Sacramento, Governor Jerry Brown faces a pivotal challenge: balancing a budget and asking voters to raise taxes. We present live coverage of the governor's State of the State Address, his first chance to explain his vision on those and other issues to the voters. After the speech, we feature political analysis and reaction from both sides of the aisle.
