LA council wants to cap healthcare benefits of retired police, firefighters

LOS ANGELES

The ordinance would cap the city's maximum contribution at $1,097 a month.

Officials said the move would save the city an estimated $68 million a year.

The city is in the midst of closed-door talks with the police and firefighters unions.

The police union said it will review the proposal.

The ordinance comes back to the council for a second vote next month.
