ANTONOVICH VOTES “NO” ON STORMWATER TAX
LOS ANGELES COUNTY – Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich cast the lone “no” vote on a motion by Supervisors Molina and Knabe to close the protest hearing and look into putting the tax measure on the ballot in 2014.
“Stormwater cleanup is the state’s responsibility and the legislature and Governor need to develop a statewide approach to solving this problem,” said Antonovich. “County residents, school districts, businesses and churches should not be burdened with higher taxes to support another state unfunded mandate.”
