Looks like the last thread got shut down for being too long, so here is a new thread where we can talk about the latest in California propositions, and those of you from outside the state can point and laugh. We're having a special election on May 19 -- less than three weeks from now -- where six state propositions will be up for vote. All six were put forth as a package by the state legislature, supposedly to help fix the ongoing budget issues that California has. Here's a little rundown of each proposition, with links to the state Voter Information Guide where you can see the analysis and arguments for and against. My thoughts in a separate post (not that I've made up my mind on all of these). Sorry for the all caps, that's how they're in the VIG, I'm just copying and pasting. 1A: STATE BUDGET. CHANGES CALIFORNIA BUDGET PROCESS. LIMITS STATE SPENDING. INCREASES “RAINY DAY” BUDGET STABILIZATION FUND. 1B: EDUCATION FUNDING. PAYMENT PLAN. 1C: LOTTERY MODERNIZATION ACT. 1D: PROTECTS CHILDREN’S SERVICES FUNDING. HELPS BALANCE STATE BUDGET. 1E: MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES FUNDING. TEMPORARY REALLOCATION. HELPS BALANCE STATE BUDGET. 1F: ELECTED OFFICIALS’ SALARIES. PREVENTS PAY INCREASES DURING BUDGET DEFICIT YEARS.
