YES - School & Public Safety Act

Vote YES on Protect Schools and Public Safety Tax Initiative

In the past 4 years, more than $20 billion has been cut from public education in California. We rank 47th in the nation in per-student funding and now have the largest class sizes in the country.  This year an additional $8 billion in new cuts are being proposed. And without new revenue, an additional $6 billion will be cut from public education. It’s time to invest in our common future and put California back on track.

Governor Brown Discusses 2012-13 State Budget

This initiative taxes the wealthy to provide billions for public schools and essential services and helps close the state budget deficit.

  • The revenue increases are temporary, with the income tax provisions lasting 7 years and the sales tax provisions lasting 4 years.

  • Individuals making below $250,000 and families making below $500,000 will pay NO additional income tax, so the middle class and poor are not impacted by the income tax increase.

  • The initiative guarantees that new revenues will go to education, bars funds for administrative costs, and all funds are subject to an independent audit.

NO - Special Exemptions Act

Vote NO on Special Exemptions Act

The Special Exemptions Act is a gross power grab for wealthy corporate interests and billionaire businessmen who are determined to eliminate the political voice and power of the middle class.

Not What It Seems

Proponents are trying to convince voters that this is campaign finance reform.  The reality is that it makes matters worse by exempting those who are paying the most to influence the public right now.  Who would be exempt even if this initiative passes?

  • Hedge Funds
  • Billionaires
  • Limited Partnerships
  • Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs)
  • Limited Liability Companies (LLCs)
  • Real Estate Investment Trusts
  • Business Trusts
  • Indian Tribes
  • Sole Proprietorships

Corporations already outspend unions 15 to 1 in political expenditures . If this initiative passes, it would give them free rein to exert even more influence over our political system, and that hurts all of us.
