BOMA/GLA GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS COMMITTEE TAKES POSITIONS ON BALLOT MEASURES H AND S

With the March elections around the corner, the Government Affairs Committee, the issue-tracking arm of the association, voted to support LA County Measure H while opposing City of LA Measure S.

Measure H would increase the sales tax by one quarter cent to support substance abuse and mental health services for the homeless. The proposal is designed as a companion bill to LA’s recently-passed Measure HHH, which uses bond proceeds to finance homeless facility construction.
