NASL expansion talk has centered around Los Angeles for the past two months, and we've been awaiting an announcement confirming the move for some time. Kartik Krishnaiyer is now hearing that the announcement is coming soon, but that the club won't begin play in 2015 like some reports were originally suggesting:
I am hearing from multiple #NASL sources that the LA expansion team will not play until at least 2016. Announcement still expected soon.

Beginning play in 2016 is probably the wisest idea as far as I'm concerned, giving the club a little more time to get things organized ahead of their inaugural campaign. That announcement should also mean the fall schedule will be coming relatively soon, as the wait for it to be released was likely due to the possibility of an extra team and two additional games for each club.
Either way though, it sounds as if we'll have details from the league very soon.
