The California Budget & Policy Center continued our Policy Perspectives Speakers Series with Key Statewide Measures on the November Ballot and What They Could Mean for Housing, Transportation, and Our Communities.

This half-day event in Los Angeles at the Joan Palevsky Center for the Future of Los Angeles looked at five important ballot measures: Prop. 1 (affordable housing bond), Prop. 2 (mental health dollars for homelessness), Prop. 5 (expanding local property tax breaks), Prop. 6 (curtailing transportation funding), and Prop. 10 (rent control).

Proposition 5: Should Californians Expand Property Tax Breaks for Older, Wealthier Homeowners at the Expense of Other Homeowners and Public Services?

Proposition 6: Should Californians Eliminate Recently Enacted Funding for Road Repairs and Transportation Infrastructure?
