FROM THIS EPISODE

The State Legislature took one more step today toward requiring that all children be vaccinated before they enter kindergarten. The Assembly joined the Senate in approving a measure that would deny moral, personal or religious exemptions. But, advocates of parental choice aren't giving up yet.

Also, street venders may be living the American dream, but brick-and-mortar businesses want the City of LA to crack down.

Is Mandatory Vaccination in California's Future? 16 MIN, 56 SEC

Personal, moral or religious exemptions won’t be allowed if Governor Brown signs a bill passed today by the State Assembly. The Senate originated the measure, which would require vaccination of all children entering kindergarten. It passed both houses by big margins, but opponents plan a court challenge and, possibly, a referendum. First, it has to go to Governor Brown. Jeremy White covers the Capitol for the Sacramento Bee.

Will the City of LA Crack Down on Immigrant Street Venders? 5 MIN, 43 SEC

In South Los Angeles tonight, city officials are hosting the last in a series of hearings that have attracted big crowds: what to do about thousands of merchants who sell food and other merchandise on the streets… without permits.  Venders and their allies want the trade to be permitted, but some business owners don't like the idea at all. KCRW's Saul Gonzalez has our story.
