Panel OKs Audit of Emergency Medical Funds in L.A. County
California's Joint Legislative Audit Committee has ordered an audit into how funds from 2002's Measure B are distributed throughout Los Angeles County to trauma centers and emergencyÂ department services. The order comes in response to complaints that the funding is not being distributed fairly. Measure B increased county property taxes by three cents per square foot to provide funding for the county's trauma centers and emergency medical services.
