Students and faculty rallied yesterday for increased funding for higher education in California, but the most interesting thing is what lawmakers aren't saying.

Capitol Bureau reporter Ben Bradford joins Beth Ruyak for our weekly Capitol Chat discussion. We'll hear more about possible funding for the California State University system and why Gov. Jerry Brown doesn't want to budge from what he's already committed.

We'll also learn why California is in a unique position as the Trump administration attempts to roll back Obama-era fuel efficiency targets for cars and trucks.
