There they go again.
If you haven’t already heard, Democratic legislators have introduced a bill that would dilute the taxpayer protections found in Proposition 13—the voter-approved and consistently popular ballot measure that has limited property tax increases.
Their proposal would call for a “split-roll”, which means that commercial properties would be exempt from Proposition 13 protection. The result would be significant property tax increases.
Just what California needs: another tax increase on businesses.
It’s unacceptable. We need to do everything in our power to keep businesses open in California – not give them another roadblock to success.
Fortunately, Democrats in the legislature will need a 2/3 vote in both the Senate and the Assembly in order to put this proposal on the ballot for voter approval. In order to do so, they’ll need Republicans to vote for the proposal.
Please add your name to this list demanding that my fellow Republicans stand strong and hold the line against this proposed tax increase.
