15. The California Initiative
Edited on Tue Jun-28-11 11:59 AM by xxqqqzme
process needs to be revamped. One of the contributors to the state's economic woes is initiatives. When incoming revenues are under an initiative mandate to go to certain agencies or departments, there is little that can be done.

Recently signatures were being gathered for the '1% on 1%' - a 1% tax increase on the richest 1% but the generated revenue will be yet another mandate. Although I agree K through 14 needs the money, it only underlines the existing problem.

And we need to restrict out of state money from flooding the state w/ those special interest initiatives.
