No on Prop 6 – Gas Tax Repeal
By eliminating the funding of thousands of transportation improvement projects that are already underway, this ballot initiative would makes bridges & roads less safe and lead to job loss for thousands. Learn more here.
Yes on Prop 10 – Affordable Housing Act
Affordable Housing Act. By repealing a harmful law from the 90s (the Costa Hawkins Act), this ballot proposal would restore local communities’ ability to make their own decisions about rent control.
