    State Senator Mark DeSaulnier says it may be time to look at making BART strikes illegal. Jodi Hernandez reports.

    Should BART strikes be illegal?

    State Senator Mark DeSaulnier thinks so and says it may be time for California to follow the lead of states like Oregon and New York, where mass transit strikes are not allowed.

    However, unions representing BART workers say derailing their rights to strike would give the transit agency the upper hand.
