YES on Prop. 30, the Schools & Local Public Safety Protection Act.
Prop. 30 will raise nearly $9 billion by increasing income taxes by only 3 percent on the state’s wealthiest residents. Those funds will stave off another devastating $6 billion in cuts to K-12 public education, community colleges, the state’s higher education system, and public safety
NO on Prop. 32, the Special Exemptions Act. It’s not what it seems.
Prop. 32 would silence the voices of union members fighting for good jobs, public services, and retirement. At the same time, Prop. 32 creates loopholes that grant big corporations exemptions to spend as much as they want on politics. In other words, Prop. 32 is a trick to give the wealthy and big corporations even more say over our lives.
