Legislation 

Below are links to details on Bills before the California State Legislature that gives information that is not covered by the mainstream media and the left and Democrats don't want known.

You can call Gov Newsom's office at (916) 445-2841 to voice your opinion on any Legislation.

 

Prop 17 Voting Rights Restoration for Persons on Parole Amendment:  The measure would amend Section 2 and Section 4 of Article II of the California Constitution and allow people on parole for felony convictions to vote in California.

When It Comes to Ballot Measures, DON'T take the California Attorney General's Word For It! Since a majority of voters never read beyond the title and summary of the initiatives, and sometimes not even the whole title, it is critical that they be written concisely, accurately, completely and neutrally.

Unfortunately, that's not the way our current Attorney General operates. Being fully aware that voters tend to be somewhat uninformed, Xavier Bacerra makes it a practice to engage in some creative writing, offering long, confusing and misleading titles and summaries on key issues to manipulate the vote whichever way his party and his major donors (labor unions) wants. This in spite of his fiduciary responsibility to be neutral.
 

Prop 14 California Stem Cell Research Institute Bond Initiative:  "yes" vote supports issuing $5.5 billion in general obligation bonds for the state's stem cell research institute and making changes to the institute's governance structure and programs.

"no" vote opposes issuing $5.5 billion general obligation bonds for the state's stem cell research institute, which, in 2019, ran out of the original funds for new projects derived from Proposition 71 (2004).

Prop 16 The Affirmative Action Amendment:  "YES" vote supports a constitutional amendment: the repeal of Proposition 209 (1996). Proposition 209 prohibited the state from discriminating against or granting preferential treatment to persons on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in public employment, public education, and public contracting.

"NO" vote opposes this constitutional amendment. A NO vote keeps Proposition 209 (1996), which prohibited the state from discriminating against or granting preferential treatment to persons on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in public employment, public education, and public contracting
 

Proposition 22 App Based Drivers as Contractors & Labor Policies Initiative: This proposition is a result of AB 5, a bill pushed by the unions.  The goal was to eliminate contract workers by making them employees.

Proposition 18 Allow 17 Year Old's to Register to VoteThis ballot measure allows 17-year-old citizens to register to vote, and to cast a ballot if they turn 18 prior to the election itself.

Prop 23 Dialysis Clinic Requirements Initiative: The proposition authorizes State regulation of kidney dialysis clinics and establishes minimum staffing requirements

2020 Ballot Propositions: With fewer than 130 days before the election, we thought it was a good time to do a roundup of the various propositions that will appear on the November ballot. Please note this list is not final. 
 
Senate Special Committee on Pandemic Emergency Response: This update is a summary from Senator Pat Bates, Vice Chair of the Senate Special Committee on Pandemic Emergency Response, providing the key takeaways from the first committee meeting.

California Criminal Sentencing Parole, and DNA Collection (2020)Restricts Parole for Non-Violent Offenders. Authorizes Felony Sentences for Certain Offenses Currently Treated Only as Misdemeanors. 
 
SB10 - PRETRIAL RELEASE AND DETENTION SB10 - PRETRIAL RELEASE AND DETENTION:  It replaces California's cash bail system with risk assessments to determine whether a detained suspect should be granted pretrial release and the conditions under which release would be granted.  Review the Current Pretrial Release and Detention System
 
Proposition 13 Split Roll Tax-Increase: Businesses whose owners have more than $3.0 million in holdings in CA would have their properties immediately reassessed to current market value, and then reassessed again every three years.  It would also not apply to residential property owners (YET!).  
 
Arguments For Split Roll Property Taxes: What is stealing money from schools and cities are things like ridiculous and bloated pensions and benefits for an over sized government workforce with too many layers, encouraging illegal and unemployed people to come here for myriad "free" benefits, and the resulting extremely high Medicaid costs, and too much regulation that requires even more layers of bureaucracy, to name just a couple of factors.
 
California Local Rent Control Initiative: The ballot measure would replace the Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act (Costa-Hawkins), which was passed in 1995. Costa-Hawkins has allowed local governments to use rent control, except on (a) housing that was first occupied after February 1, 1995, and (b) housing units with distinct titles, such as condos, townhouses, and single-family homes.[1]
