Prop 19 – Legalize Marijuana YES
End prohibition. It didn’t work with whiskey, and the herb is a less dangerous drug than alcohol.
Prop 20 –
Congressional Redistricting YES
Creates multi-partisan commission to draw new boundaries of congressional districts. Prevents one party from dominating process.
Prop. 21 –
Vehicle License Fee YES
Fee to be used for state parks and wildlife programs. Seems only fair since car pollution is helping destroy the environment. Bonus – Vehicles that have paid fee get in state parks for free.
Prop. 22 –
Transportation and Local
Government Funding NO
The state shouldn’t be tampering with local funding. On the other hand, even more important programs could be cut if the state cannot tap these funds.
Prop. 23 – Suspends Air
Pollution Control Laws NO
This isn’t something to help workers or create more jobs. It is funded by the big Texas oil companies for their own self interest.
Prop. 24 – Repeals
Corporate Tax Breaks YES
Corporations should pay their fair share. If they don’t pay, we pay.
Prop. 25 – Majority Vote
on State Budgets YES
The legislative battles to win a two-thirds majority in order to pass a budget are legendary. These needless budget battles cause a hardship for thousands of poor people and state employees.
Prop. 26 – Two-Thirds Vote
on Fees NO
A corporate tax loophole in the making. Don’t fall for it.
Prop. 27 – Repeals
Redistricting Commission NO
Politicians trying to grab control back so they can continue in office without opposition until termed out.
