LOS ANGELES : Council Votes Opposition to School Voucher Plan

September 09, 1993

The Los Angeles City Council unanimously expressed its opposition Wednesday to Proposition 174, the state school voucher measure.

Council members said the measure--which would create vouchers worth about $2,600 per child, to be redeemed at private schools--would drain critical resources away from the public school system.

Councilwoman Rita Walters, a former member of the Los Angeles Unified School District Board, led the opposition to the initiative. The council voted 14 to 0 in favor of her position.

Councilman Rudy Svorinich left the council chamber during the vote.
