Airing on Monday, June 1, 2015: Congress is poised to make private companies get more involved in monitoring data and phone calls. More on that. Plus, a couple months back, we talked to a farmer in the Sacramento Delta with long-standing water rights. He was worried about the state curtailing his water because of California’s historic drought. Now he and other farmers with senior rights have given up 25 percent of their water this year to prevent further cutbacks. We catch up with him. And Skid Row in downtown Los Angeles has always been where homeless services are concentrated, but businesses and schools in the neighborhood say security and other problems are growing. We take a closer look as part of our series on the homeless.
