California Democats Attack Prop 13

ACTION NEEDED: Contact members of the Assembly Revenue and Taxation Committee (see below) and tell them you oppose Assembly Constitutional Amendment 21.

WHEN TO TAKE ACTION: Now. A bill radically amending the two-thirds vote protection provided by Proposition 13 is up for a hearing this Monday, July 2nd, at 1:30. Even if it's the weekend, please call anyway and leave a message!

WHY: Los Angeles Assemblyman Mike Feuer (916-319-2042) has introduced a bill, ACA 21, that lowers the two-thirds vote for local education parcel taxes from a two-thirds to a 55% vote.

This bill will make it easier for local politicians to increase your property taxes, already 14th in the nation, even higher! The money will go to fund education programs, despite the fact that at least 40% of the state budget already goes to education. Increasing taxes in the middle of the worst foreclosure crisis in 70 years is neither warranted or wise. `

Call Mike Feuer (916-319-2042) and your representatives on the Committee and tell them to vote NO on ACA 21.
