A proposal requiring taggers and their parents to pay for damages may become law.The County Board of Supervisors will vote on the ordinance on Tuesday. It was tentatively approved last week.

If approved, the new law would go into effect in 30 days.

Supervisor Gloria Molina made the proposal in response to the fatal shooting of a Pico Rivera grandmother last August. The woman was trying to stop a graffiti vandal from defacing a wall near her home when she was killed.
