Though the 2014 election is nearly a full year away, a series of de facto deadlines are fast approaching that will shape the makeup of next November's ballot. Initiatives to raise medical malpractice awards, hike tobacco taxes and give local governments the right to scale back public-employee pensions are among the ballot measures being considered.

The second suspected gunman who allegedly opened fire at a Sikh sports event in Sacramento County has been caught in India five years after the fatal shooting, the FBI announced. Amandeep Singh Dhami, 28, went on the run after the August 2008 attack at the Gurmukh Singh Johal Memorial Tournament, according to the FBI. One person -- 26-year-old Parmjit Pamma Singh -- died in the shooting, and several more were injured. Spectators were able to hold down the other shooter -- 28-year-old Gurpreet Singh Gosal -- until Sacramento County Sheriff's deputies arrived at the scene, some of them using hockey sticks and cricket bats, the Sacramento Bee reported.
