Councilman Buscaino Supports Local Businesses
The Councilman is a strong supporter of business and is in favor of eliminating the gross receipts tax. He is always thinking of ways to promote economic development and entice businesses to do work in our district and the City. In that spirit, in 2013, he introduced a motion that would give businesses that manufacture in LA County an advantage when bidding on City contracts, over those businesses that manufacture outside the City. The motion was referred to Budget and Finance Committee and Economic Development Committee (EDD). The EDD scheduled the item for 01/27/15. As a result, Councilman Price asked the CLA (Chief Legislative Analyst) to conduct a review of policies adopted by other cities to encourage local manufacturing. The CLA will then be reporting back to EDD.
