Time for State of Affairs, our look at politics and government throughout California with KPCC political reporters Alice Walton and Frank Stoltze.

The Board of Supervisors made news this week with the announcement that more than 500 jail inmates would be sent to firefighter camps. Why is the county doing this?

It seems we are always talking about an election here and this week is no exception. There were two special elections this week to fill state seats that were vacated when politicians were elected to the Los Angeles City Council. What's the latest with the state Senate and Assembly races?

Over at City Hall, a panel is underway to look at allegations that Councilman Jose Huizar sexually harassed one of his staffers. This is a confidential process, but is the public going to find out what's happening here?

Finally, both L.A. county and city have thrown their support behind an effort to bring the Olympics back to Southern California in 2024. What are the chances this will become a reality?
