This week on PBS SoCaL, we delve into the drama surrounding proposed toll lanes on the Interstate 405 freeway, with a delay in the decision now likely after officials questioned where the toll money would end up.
Dozens of residents and officials are expected to show up to the Orange County Transportation Authority board meeting today, where a vote is scheduled and could be postponed.
The meeting starts at 9 a.m. at OCTA headquarters in Orange.
We also discuss:
- An intense debate over proposed criminal penalties against homeowners who allow underage drinking.
- The state Supreme Court takes up the case of whether homes can be built on one of the last pieces of open space in the city of Orange.
- News leaders like the Los Angeles Times and The Orange County Register join Voice of OC’s lawsuit to see public records that could show whether county leaders mishandled sexual harassment complaints against Carlos Bustamante.
- A recent state audit finds that the state Labor Department is doing a horrible job managing millions of federal dollars intended to place returning veterans in jobs.
- An event at the Orange County Fairgrounds that includes job placement help for veterans.
