Yes on Prop 15 & Prop 16
What is Prop 15?
Prop 15 is a fair and balanced reform that:
Closes property tax loopholes benefiting wealthy corporations.
Cuts small business taxes.
Reclaims billions every year to invest in our schools and local communities.
Exempts homeowners, renters, small businesses and agricultural land so they continue to be protected by Prop 13.
Prioritizes transparency and accountability by requiring public disclosure of all new revenues and how they are spent.
Just 10% of California’s most expensive nonresidential commercial properties account for 92% of Prop 15’s loophole-closing revenues.

Yes on Prop 16
What is Prop 16?
Current law prevents our elected leaders from taking targeted action to fight discrimination based on race and gender.
Voting “Yes” on Proposition 16 would reverse the ban on equal opportunity policies like affirmative action so that elected leaders can design programs that provide good jobs, better wages, and access to great schools for all Californians.
Proposition 16 is how we build a California that reflects our values of diversity and fairness — and how we show the nation what eradicating discrimination in all its forms really looks like. (Source, voteyesonprop16.org)
