Smooth Electric Technology, Bumpy LA Roads

Hosted by

This week the LA City Council nixed their push for a half-cent sales tax increase to pay for more than 8,000 miles of much-needed street repairs. City Council members Mitch Englander and Joe Buscaino dropped their ballot measure proposal that would’ve raised the city sales tax rate to 9.5 percent to fund road and sidewalk repairs. Dave Zahniser from the LA Times is here to discuss. Also, Alan Ohnsman from Bloomberg Business Week joins Steve Chiotakis to talk about Tesla offering up its electric car technology patents to anyone.
