The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors planned to vote Tuesday on a plan to help mitigate the Sheriff Department’s deficit of $63,400,000 by reducing Sheriff Alex Villanueva’s spending power.

Deputy overtime largely contributed to the excess, according to the Los Angeles Times. Now, the Board of Supervisors is considering implementing a hiring freeze, among other steps.
