"Councilwoman Janice Hahn prepping for Sacramento ??"
Thirteen well-paid politicians emerge from behind close doors and the results ?? From the LA Times.
The Los Angeles City Council voted today to move ahead with a plan to impose furloughs and layoffs on its civilian workforce, even as it called for two more days of talks with its unions to keep from having to follow through with that plan.
On a 13-0 vote, the council also declined to put an early retirement plan into effect on the grounds that it is too costly.
The council also took the first step toward eliminating 926 positions and imposing 26 days of furloughs on the Coalition of L.A. City Unions in an attempt to eliminate a $405 million shortfall.
Council members said they hope to reach an agreement with the coalition before Sept. 28, when furloughs would begin to take effect.
The "political perfect storm" is rumbling in the near distance.
