City of Riverside Invites Development of the 2018-2020 Budget








California State June 2018 Ballot Measures

The LWVC board has final positions on the state measures scheduled for the June ballot.

Here’s a quick summary of the League position on each measure.




Prop 13 reform




California Schools and Local Community Funding Act


Big News! After almost 40 years, the LWVC is seizing the moment to close the corporate loophole in Proposition 13 that keeps too many companies from paying their fair share.
 The California Schools and Local Communities Funding Act of 2018
will create a “split roll”; non-residential, non-agricultural commercial property will be reassessed on a regular basis. This will lead to an estimated increase in property tax of over $11 billion per year—revenue that will go directly to schools and local governments.

We hope you will join us in restoring billions of dollars to our schools and communities.
