Events

 

 Prop 13 reform

 

 

League of Women Voters California is leading a powerful grassroots coalition

 Schools and Communities First.

 

We are gathering signatures for a November 2020 ballot measure,

 

The measure will close Prop 13's commercial property tax loophole and invest $11 billion a year in

our schools and local communities.  It will not raise taxes on homeowners, renters or small businesses.

 

LWVR had planned a discussion on California Schools and Local Funding Act of 2018 for Saturday, April 28th.

As proponents have decided to hold the measure for the 2020 ballot,

the discussion has been postponed to a later date.
