The Propositions for November 8, 2022

PROPOSITION 1 VOTE NO – This is a vote of SCA 10 (State Constitution Amendment) approved by the legislature and requiring a vote of the electorate. Prop 1 amends the constitution preventing the legislature and future lawmakers from placing reasonable limits on abortions. It prohibits the state from denying or interfering with an individual’s reproductive freedom and includes their fundamental right to choose to have an abortion and the right to choose or refuse contraceptives.


PROPOSITION 26VOTE NO California Legalize Sports Betting on American Indian Lands – Will legalize sports betting at Indian gaming casinos and racetracks. Would allow sports betting on the results of professional, college or amateur sport and athletic events, with the exception of high school sports and events featuring California college teams. It enacts a 10% tax on profits with revenue distributed as follows: 15% to the California Dept. of Health for researching, developing, and implementing programs for problem gambling prevention and mental health and providing grants to local government to address problem gambling and mental health, 15% to the Bureau of Gambling Control for enforcing and implementing sports wagering and other forms of gaming and 70% to the general fund for the State. A way for the State to get more money. Supported by several Indian tribes.


PROPOSITION 27VOTE NO California Legalize Sports Betting and Revenue for Homeless Prevention Fund Initiative – This proposes a constitutional amendment to allow an online sports betting platform and an operating agreement with a gaming tribe or a qualified gaming company with a market access agreement with a gaming tribe. The proposed law would create the Division of Online Sports Betting Control within the Dept. of Justice. After deducting regulatory costs, 85 % of the funds revenues would be allocated to California Solutions to Homelessness and Mental Health Support Account for permanent and interim housing and 15 % of revenues to the Tribal Economic Development Account, which would be established by the initiative to provide funds to Indian tribes for expanding tribal government, public health, education, infrastructure and economic development.

PROPOSITION 28 VOTE NO Art and Music K-12 Education Funding Initiative – Requires a minimum source of annual funding for K-12 public schools, including charter schools, to fund arts education programs. The annual minimum amount would be equal to, at minimum 1% of the total state and local revenues that local education agencies received under Prop 98. This would be in addition to the amount required by Prop. 98. So additional monies would come from the general fund.


PROP 29 VOTE NO Requires On-Site Licensed Medical Professionals at Kidney Dialysis Clinics and Establishes other State Requirements – This sounds good but is actually a union bill and has appeared on the ballot in the past. The cost of mandating the proposed requirements within the clinic during business hours will significantly increase cost of treatment and could lead to clinics closing. The previous measures were rejected by voters in 2018 and 2020.


PROP 30 VOTE NO Tax on Income Above $2 million for zero-emissions vehicles and wildfire prevention – Increases the tax on personal income above $2 million by 1.75% and dedicating the revenue to zero-emission vehicle subsidies, zero-emission vehicle infrastructure, such as electric vehicle charging stations and wildfire suppression and prevention programs. The tax would take effect on 1/1/23.


Prop 31VOTE YES Flavored Tobacco Products Ban Referendum – This is an effort by tobacco interests to overturn Senate Bill 793 which was signed into law on 8/28/20 which stopped the sale of flavored tobacco products and tobacco product flavor enhancers, with the exceptions for hookah tobacco, loose leaf tobacco and premium cigars. VOTE YES (a yes vote is a vote to keep SB 793)
