A City of Sierra Madre Utility User Tax to Fund Paramedics, Measure 12-2 was on the April 10, 2012 ballot for voters in the City of Sierra Madre in Los Angeles County, where it was defeated.[1][2]

Measure 12-2 was an advisory question. It was only relevant if Measure 12-1, which was also on the April 10 ballot, had been approved. Measure 12-1, however, was defeated.

Measure 12-2 asked what should happen with any additional revenue that would be raised if Measure 12-1 had been approved. Specifically, Measure 12-2 asked the voters of Sierra Madre to weigh in on whether the additional revenue should be used to fund "public safety services, including paramedic programs."
