LA to Vote on Measure L: Who Hates Libraries?

Hosted by

All Los Angeles City Libraries are now closed two days a week. It's the first time in 140 years that not even one library is open everyday. The Mayor and City Council have the authority to give them more money, but they're asking voters to do it — without raising taxes. LA Police Chief Charlie Beck supports Measure L, but the Police Protective League is opposed because it might mean less for the LAPD.  Local newspapers, the League of Women Voters and the Chamber of Commerce are also opposing Measure L.  But some budget hawks are all for it. We hear from both sides.
