Proposition 26

Hosted by

Proposition 26 on next week's ballot would re-label what now are called "fees," "levies" and other assessments and call them "taxes" instead.  That means passage would require two-thirds super-majorities in the legislature, instead of the current 51 percent.  Fees for air and water pollution, oil-spill clean-up, tobacco and alcohol would be affected.  We get two perspectives on the initiative.
