I forgot to mention that the .0175 - .03 is not 1% to 3% of the total City budget.

Um, things are not ok in Los Angeles libraries. 100+ individuals have been laid off, staffing and hours have been cut by 28%. All branches are closed Sunday and Monday. The City is in the process of charging all "indirect" expenditures, i.e., pension funding, maintenance, landscaping, custodial and security, utilities, and so on to the Library budget. That transition will continue regardless of the result of Measure L. If Measure L does not pass, there will be a further significant reduction in services.
