It depends upon what code revision you are on. The LA County website says it is based upon the 2010 California and 2008 National Electric Codes.
In 2008 NEC requires AFCI breakers in:
"210.12(b) Dwelling Units. All 120-volt, single-phase, 15- and 20-ampere branch circuits supplying outlets installed in dwelling unit family rooms, dining rooms, living rooms, parlors, libraries, dens, bedrooms, sun rooms, recreation rooms, closets, hallways, or similar rooms or areas shall be protected by a listed arc-fault circuit interrupter, combination-type, installed to provide protection of the branch circuit."
So, it looks like they all need to be AFCI, but check with your local AHJ.
Yes, it includes the lighting.
