Focus on Changing Prop 13 Still Hot
While a just released Public Policy Institute study suggested that lowering the two-thirds vote for school parcel taxes would be limited in effect, don’t think for a moment that the effort to cut Prop’s 13’s requirement to raise taxes won’t be pushed by the legislature next year.There are still six active bills focused on changing the two-thirds vote requirement for tax increases on the local level. The PPIC study correctly noted that changes to Proposition 13 “is a major focus of attention” in the legislature. Senate leader Darrell Steinberg said he is open to the possibility of changing Prop 13 starting in 2014.
