Los Angeles City Council President Eric Garcetti walks us through this week’s vote on the proposed DWP rate hike, the recently passed ordinance that cuts taxes for internet-based businesses in L.A. and the cities spending freeze. The council president joined L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on a trip to Washington D.C. last week to petition the Feds to fork over some cash so the city can get going on numerous infrastructure projects. We’ll find out what those projects are and how many jobs they are expected to create. We’ll also ask about the “city council seven” who refuse to take pay-cuts despite the fact that their colleagues and many state workers have had to make the sacrifice.
Eric Garcetti, Los Angeles City Council President representing District 13
