L.A. council approves rules that could ban members of the public who violate decorum
The Los Angeles City Council unanimously approved a measure today that will give the council president more discretion to eject members of the public who violate the chamber’s rules of decorum.
Under the strengthened policy, which was approved without debate, the president will no longer have to warn speakers deemed unruly and disruptive before kicking them out. Violations will also ban the speakers from appearing in the chamber for up to 30 council-meeting days.
Taking cues from more stringent policies adopted by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, the council expanded the scope of unacceptable actions to include “disorderly, contemptuous or insolent” behavior toward council members and boisterous conduct that disrupts the meeting.
