[NO] CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 24 (NOV, 2010) -- TAX LIABILITIES
[NO] CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 27 (NOV, 2010) -- REDISTRICTING

[YES] CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 22 (NOV, 2010) -- DIVERSION OF FUNDS

I urge a YES vote on Proposition 22 to stop the state from grabbing or delaying the disbursement of local funds to “paper-over” continuing structural deficits of the state’s own making. By voting YES, you would be forcing the State’s legislature to accept its fiscal responsibility. We the people demand fiscal and budgetary responsibility and this would be a good first step.

The official position …

Proposition 22 – Put on Ballot By Petition Signatures
PROHIBITS THE STATE FROM BORROWING OR TAKING FUNDS USED FOR TRANSPORTATION, REDEVELOPMENT, OR LOCAL GOVERNMENT PROJECTS AND SERVICES. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT.

Prohibits State, even during severe fiscal hardship, from delaying distribution of tax revenues for these purposes. Fiscal Impact: Decreased state General Fund spending and/or increased state revenues, probably in the range of $1 billion to several billions of dollars annually. Comparable increases in funding for state and local transportation programs and local redevelopment.

YES -- A YES vote on this measure means: The state's authority to use or redirect state fuel tax and local property tax revenues would be significantly restricted.
NO -- A NO vote on this measure means: The state's current authority over state fuel tax and local property tax revenues would not be affected.
