FROM THIS EPISODE

Here in the capital of urban sprawl, cities including Los Angeles have been growing up to accommodate increased urban density. With the need to live closer to jobs — with the lowest-paying jobs increasing fastest -- another trend is growing small. Also, how California will be affected by today's US Supreme Court Decision on voting rights.

Image-for-WWLA.jpgOn our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, another split decision by the US Supreme Court led Chief Justice Roberts has created a political firestorm.  One provision of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 has been ruled unconstitutional because the Court says it's based on voting patterns that are out of date.

Making News CA Counties Affected by Supreme Court's Voting Rights Decision 11 MIN, 30 SEC

With another split decision by the US Supreme Court, Chief Justice Roberts has created a political firestorm. One provision of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 has been ruled unconstitutional because the Court says it's based on voting patterns that are out of date. Some parts of California also will be affected. They won't have to report to Washington whenever they make even minor changes in voting laws.

Main Topic Growing Up and Growing Small 15 MIN, 28 SEC

KCRW's continuing series, LA Grows Up has focused on high-rise residential buildings to accommodate increasing urban density. But the process also includes growing small. New micro-apartments have roughly 300 square feet. Is that enough space for single young professionals or retirees? What about parking?
