Governor Schwarzenegger signed a bill to extend foster care benefits to age 21

Today, the LA County Board of Supervisors will vote today on whether to sever ties with Teens Happy Homes. The foster care agency has a documented history of child abuse and misappropriating funds. 

Garrett Therolf, the LA Times reporter who broke the story, joins the show with an update.
