Take the LA Budget Challenge: Extended to March 4

The Mayor's Los Angeles Budget Challenge is an interactive tool that gives you the chance to help balance the budget yourself, deciding where to shift priorities, cut expenditures and increase revenue sources. The Budget Challenge is loaded with information so you can learn more about the City's budget, where money comes from and goes, the process of budget-building, and the ramifications of budget cuts.

Your responses will help the Mayor make the difficult decisions necessary to continue to move Los Angeles toward better financial health, while protecting our City's most essential services.

Be sure to tell your LA friends and neighbors about it, too. The survey will be open until March 4. The Mayor will reveal the responses to the Challenge on March 12 at City Hall during his Regional Budget Day.
