A Last Look at Some of Tomorrow's Big Ballot
Listen to/Watch entire show:
Everybody agrees that California has failed to invest in the roads, schools, housing and flood control needed to sustain growth and prosperity. Propositions 1B, 1C, 1D and 1E would not make up all the difference, but they would raise $37.3 billion for public works bonds. Plus, a debate on Proposition 90, and how to decide which judge to vote for.
Additional Resources for Voters
An Overview of the Bond Measures ()
Governor Schwarzenegger and Democratic leaders put $37.3 billion in bonds on the ballot for roads, schools, housing and flood control--three times more than ever called for all at once. We hear what the money would go for.
Proposition 90 and Eminent Domain ()
Both sides call the last proposition on the ballot a “sleeper.” The money spent for and against it is small by this year’s standards, and there has not been a lot of debate--even though it could make a big difference for property owners or taxpayers, depending on which side you’re on. Proposition 90 would make it harder for local governments to take private property for public purposes and increase compensation for economic losses due to new laws or regulations.
How to Decide Which Judge to Vote for ()
The California ballot lists Supreme and Appellate Court justices in a way that makes it appear they might be running against one another. They aren’t. Each justice has served out his or her term, and voters are asked to decide whether they should or should not be retained.
