CAPA: Los Angeles Says NO 4 a.m. Last Call

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- California Alcohol Policy Alliance (CAPA) has come out in strong support of Los Angeles City Councilmember Paul Koretz's resolution (Council File: 19-002-S39) opposing SB 58 - the 4 a.m. bar bill.

Councilmember Koretz introduced the resolution (Council File: 19-002-S39) opposing Senator Scott Wiener's SB 58 on March 5, 2019. The full Council vote on the measure will take place Tuesday. If passed, it will be the strongest statement yet that the City of Los Angeles does NOT support the statewide public health and safety threats the bill would create by allowing a patchwork quilt of cities to extend alcohol sales to 4 a.m.

If passed and signed into law by Governor Newsom, SB 58 would launch a dangerous ten-city, five-year experiment that would expose over 76% of California's population to increased alcohol-related harm. Expected social costs generated annually in the City of Los Angeles alone would be $88?$354.5 million; while the additional revenue would only be $36.5?$146.1 million. The five-year trial period net social cost of harm in Los Angeles would minimally be $266.5 million. In Sacramento, the fate of the bill currently rests with the Assembly Appropriations Committee which will make a determination on August 30, 2019.

What: Rally / Media Event 
When: Tuesday, August 27, 2019, 9:00-10:00 a.m. (City Council Meeting to follow)
Where: Los Angeles City Hall, 200 N Spring St. Los Angeles CA, 90012 (First Street steps)
