The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is the five-member governing body of Los Angeles County, California. Members' duties are prescribed in the county's charter. As a legislative branch of government, they are responsible for passing laws and budgets, as well as proposing new ordinances and resolutions that must be approved by either a majority or two-thirds vote. They also have considerable influence over the county budget because it must be submitted to them so they can make modifications prior to its adoption by the full electorate; this includes their power to raise or lower taxes at will within specified limits (subject only to voter approval). The board operates in conjunction with other agencies such as those run by city governments which report directly into it rather than through other elected officials; these include departments dealing with public health services (such as hospitals), law enforcement (including district attorneys), transportation planning and construction management among others.
