Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe and Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis in Washington, D.C. this week. The focus of Knabe’s visit with her was job creation in LA County.

Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe and other members of the Board of Supervisors were in Washington, D.C. this week to meet with Congressional leaders and The White House to discuss the priorities and challenges facing LA County, the largest county in the United States. 
The Board addressed key issues on their trip, including urging the House of Representatives to oppose a proposal to cut Medicaid by $1.4 trillion over 10 years and turn it into a block grant to the states. The proposal would disadvantage both California and the county’s most vulnerable low-income populations, as well as jeopardize the County’s health safety-net system, according to Knabe.
Additionally, the County supervisors sought to preserve federal funding support for crucial local law-enforcement and multi-agency, regional disaster first-responder capability, as well as employment and training services to tens of thousands of people across the county.
