California Statewide Election
Mga kababayan sa California, $45 billion deficit and tinatahak ng ating state at ipinapasa ng mga mambabatas sa atin ang problema sa pera…
Proposition 1A NO
This measure would make major changes to the way in which the state sets aside money in one of its “rainy day” reserve accounts and how this money is spent. The measure would tend to increase the amount of money set aside in the state’s rainy day account by increasing how much money is put into this account and restricting the withdrawal of these funds.
If this measure is approved, several tax increases passed as part of the February 2009 budget package would be extended by one to two years. State tax revenues would increase by about $16 billion from 2010-11 through 2012-13.
Proposition 1B NO
Requires supplemental payments to local school districts and community colleges to address recent budget crisis. Fiscal Impact: Potential state savings of up to several billion dollars in 2009-10 and 2010-11. Potential state costs of billions of dollars annually thereafter.
Proposition 1C NO
Allows the state lottery to be modernized to improve its performance with increased payouts, improved marketing, and effective management. Requires the state to maintain ownership of the lottery and authorizes additional accountability measures.

Temporarily provides greater flexibility in funding to preserve health and human services for young children while helping balance the state budget in a difficult economy.
Proposition 1E NO
Helps balance state budget by amending the Mental Health Services Act (Proposition 63 of 2004) to transfer funds, for two years, to pay for mental health services provided through the Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment Program for children and young adults.

Encourages balanced state budgets by preventing elected Members of the Legislature and statewide constitutional officers, including the Governor, from receiving pay raises in years when the state is running a deficit.
