Green Committee motions for 8/6/14 Assembly meeting

Proposed Green Committee motions include Water LA Program (motion i) and Antibiotics (motion ii)

i.     MOTION: Whereas the Palms Neighborhood Council (PNC) believes that water is of paramount importance to the City of Los Angeles; And Whereas the PNC supports the Mayor’s goal of cutting imported water supplies in half by 2025; And Whereas the stakeholders of Palms can be active participants in reaching this goal, but currently lack consistent guidance, reliable incentives, resources, and support; And Whereas the Water LA program has been providing these tools to Panorama City and Studio City; Therefore Be It Resolved that the Palms Neighborhood Council requests the assistance of Mayor Garcetti and Councilmember Paul Koretz to bring the Water LA program to Palms.

ii.     MOTION: Whereas 80% of antibiotics in the U.S. are fed to factory farm animals that aren’t even sick. And Whereas many of these antibiotics are the same drugs that we rely on to treat infections in people. And Whereas two million Americans experience antibiotic-resistant infections every year, resulting in at least 23,000 deaths. Therefore Be It Resolved, that the Palms Neighborhood Council supports local, state, and national efforts to ban antibiotics that are medically important to human healthcare from being used for unnecessary, non-therapeutic purposes in livestock.
