On March 22, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa describes his motives for committing Los Angeles to the Kyoto Protocol and eliminating coal as a source of the city's power by 2025. The decision by Villaraigosa was lauded by Former Vice President Al Gore, who was also in attendance.

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa delivered his final State of the City address last night, before his term ends in June.  

In his address at UCLA’s Royce Hall, Villaraigosa recounted his accomplishments and sharply criticized the two people seeking to replace him. He said neither City Controller Wendy Greuel nor City Councilman Eric Garcetti is offering “serious discussion” about education issues.

We’ll speak to KPCC’s Frank Stoltze.
