FROM THIS EPISODE

Drivers for Uber, Lyft and other ride-sharing companies are picking up passengers all over LA, but they're not allowed at the region's major traffic hub, Los Angeles International Airport. Mayor Garcetti says they should be able to operate there, too. But traditional taxis are already hurting, and cheaper competition will increase the pain. Various options are being considered by the Airport Commission -- but some City Council members are already threatening a veto.

Also, with Hillary Clinton in town, we hear how political fundraising is evolving in Hollywood.

The Pick-Up Problem at LAX 15 MIN, 37 SEC

For Uber, Lyft and other ride-sharing companies, LAX is a gaping hole in the regional transportation system. They can drop off passengers, like anyone else, but pick-ups are the exclusive province of taxi-cabs with licenses, special insurance and finger-print background checks for drivers. Mayor Garcetti says it's time for a change.
