Measure J: Re-Imagine LA

by Cynthia Hart

At our September 9, 2020, meeting, we will hear about Los Angeles County Measure J: Re-imagine LA. It will ask this question:

“Shall the measure, annually allocating in the County’s budget no less than ten percent (10%) of the County’s locally generated unrestricted revenues in the general fund to address the disproportionate impact of racial injustice through community investment and alternatives to incarceration and prohibiting using those funds for carceral systems and law enforcement agencies as detailed in the ordinance adopting the proposed charter amendment, be adopted? “

It is an amendment to the County Charter, and the required allocation amount could only be reduced in a declared “fiscal emergency” with a 4 to 1 vote of the Supervisors.
