Immediate Action Requested!
ACTION NEEDED: Contact members of the Assembly Local Government Committee (see below) and tell them you oppose Assembly Constitutional Amendment 23.
WHEN TO TAKE ACTION: Now. A bill radically amending the two-thirds vote protection provided by Proposition 13 is up for a hearing this Wednesday, June 27, at 1:30.
WHY: Fresno Assemblyman Henry Perea (916-319-2031) has introduced a bill, ACA 23, that lowers the two-thirds vote for a special tax to fund local transportation projects from a two-thirds to 55% vote.
This bill will make it easier for local politicians to raise your taxes, including sales taxes, further straining tight family budgets and costing jobs. California’s taxes are already among the highest in the nation – the politicians already have enough money to provide high quality transportation infrastructure. They don’t need any more money, they need to put an end to the rampant waste, fraud and abuse occurring under their watch.
Call Henry Perea (916-319-2031) and your representatives on the Committee and tell them to vote NO on ACA 23.
Tell them we need jobs and reforms, not taxes!
