Fire Safety and Mobile Homes People in mobile home parks have complained for years they are second-class citizens unprotected by the same codes and regulations as other residents of California.

The LA Board of Supervisors wants the County Fire Department to tell them what authority they have to set safety standards for mobile homes. We hear from a mobile home owner, a state regulator and Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky.
Trump's new look at civil rights and global warming President Trump is reportedly ready to pull the US out of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. We look at the possible consequences.
