L.A. Now Live: Discuss prison realignment, street art

Times staff writer Jason Song will join City Editor Shelby Grad for an update on prison realignment -- and the shift of responsibility for thousands of prisoners and ex-convicts from state to local authorities.

Song reports that the cost-cutting move has prompted confusion and anger as well as jockeying among public agencies for millions in public money.

The chat is scheduled for  9 a.m. Tuesday and questions can be submitted live.

Reporter Rosanna Xia will also discuss her interview with the artists behind an unusual guerrilla art project in downtown Los Angeles. The artists dropped "sunbathers" into an empty dirt pit. They said they were trying to get people to notice the "invisible" blight and might be targeting additional areas.
