No paperwork needed for LA - they did ask but I avoided the question and they didn't ask again.
I think what I've gleaned from this trip is that airports don't have a clue about procedures or the law, so the best approach is not to ask questions that could have a no answer. Just speak as though it's already been approved by their head office and they eventually just let you go on your way
Ive found the same thing when travelling abroad, except for italy, although they also haven't a clue they do look at it to see how much extra money they can get out of you for 'administration' (cue the god father intro)
Good Luck Brian, kick butt!
