Hosted by

The head of the largest Department of Water and Power union says he’s going to appeal a recent court order demanding he turn over financial records for the Joint Training Institute and Joint Safety Institute. Both of those non-profits have taken in about $40 million in ratepayer money collectively over the last ten years.

Gene Maddaus reports for the LA Weekly, and spoke with KCRW's Steve Chiotakis.
