Summary

About $3.7 billion in NCC went to those departments this year.— Bill Melugin (@BillFOXLA) August 4, 2020The proposal includes a measure to use racial criteria in determining government funding of businesses, described as “access to capital for small minority-owned businesses, with a focus on Black-owned businesses.” It also prescribes the use of “community-based restorative justice” among its “alternatives to incarceration.”The proposal’s section addressing the defunding of law enforcement includes the following language:Ensure that the ordinance containing the proposed charter amendment is clear that the use of any of these earmarked funds for carceral systems and any law enforcement agencies, including the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, L.A. County District Attorney’s Office, L.A. County Superior Courts, or L.A. County Probation Department, including redistribution of funds through these agencies, is strictly forbidden.City supervisors voting for the proposal are responding to the Black Lives Matter campaign and organization, Streetsblog reported.
