The measure’s supporters said the prohibition will curb the alcohol industry’s ability to entice young people into alcohol consumption.
Councilman Paul Koretz, one of the authors of the ban, said the city joins “Philadelphia and San Francisco in striking a blow against the presence of alcohol ads on city-owned and controlled property, including bus shelters used daily by young people in our city.”
The council voted 12-0 to approve the ordinance, which will now go to the mayor’s desk. If signed, the measure would make Los Angeles the most populous city in the country to prohibit alcohol advertising on city property, according to supporters.
