Type Title Subject Description
CISS Proposition 19 Marijuana Legalize and tax marijuana
CICA Proposition 20 Elections Congressional district lines to be re-drawn by a committee
CISS Proposition 21 Taxes Increase vehicle license fees by $18 a year to fund state parks
CICA Proposition 22 State spending State government prohibited from taking designated types of local funds
CISS Proposition 23 Environment Suspend AB 32, the "Global Warming Solutions Act" until unemployment falls below 5.5% for a year
CISS Proposition 24 Taxes Eliminates three business tax breaks
CICA Proposition 25 State spending State budget and budget-related legislation can be passed with a simple majority vote, rather than current 2/3rds requirement
CICA Proposition 26 Taxes Voters must give permission before any new taxes can be imposed
CICA Proposition 27 Elections Return task of redistricting to the California State Legislature (repealing Prop 11)

Note:  Keep in mind Proposition 20 and 27 are competing propositions.  Vote yes on one, no on the other.  Video from the League of CA Voters.

all the growers don't want pot legalized. Only Georges Soros and the unions want it legalized. Say NO to legalization of pot. It will take money away from families.
