May Ballot Measures Fate Uncertain
It's probably too early to say for sure, but polls are showing most voters oppose the ballot measures scheduled to be on the ballot for the special election in May. The one exception being Prop 1F.
I think I agree with the current majority in favor of Prop 1F, which blocks pay raises for state elected officials when the state is running a deficit. Of course, the way I see it, that means most elected officials will probably never get a pay raise, at least in my lifetime.
Meanwhile, the Sacramento Bee reports sides are starting to be drawn as far as who is for and who is against the propositions. In a rare instance of agreement, the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association is siding with a couple of government employee unions against Prop 1A. They might be on the same side, but no doubt have different reasons for opposing the measure.
As for myself, I'm still not sure just how I'll vote on any of the props but 1F.
