California Democrats have adopted resolutions affirming many of their biggest political goals, including changes to California’s landmark property tax limitation law, Proposition 13, support for gun control and opposition to hydraulic fracturing.
Some decisive numbers from the latest Field Poll show that Californians are resolute in their support for Proposition 13, the 1978 amendment to the California Constitution limiting the tax rate of real estate.
Gov. Jerry Brown said he is not planning to reform Proposition 13 as a way to stabilize California’s finances, as Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa proposed a day earlier.
Voters who strongly support legalizing marijuana in California may also be tilting the vote in the U.S. Senate race slightly in favor of incumbent Democrat Barbara Boxer, according to a new KPIX-TV CBS 5 poll released Tuesday.
