STATEWIDE BALLOT MEASURE RECOMMENDATIONS
The HJTA Political Action Committee has taken positions on the following November ballot measures. Please continue to check this page for updates and additions to this list before you vote.
- No on Proposition 29: New regulations on kidney dialysis clinics. Voters have twice rejected the same proposal to put new and needless regulations on kidney dialysis clinics. This is the third try by a powerful labor union to impose new costs on these important medical service providers. Vote NO on 29.
- No on Proposition 30: Tax increase to pay for electric vehicle subsidies and charging stations. Taxes are too high in California, and Proposition 30 would make them even higher, raising the top tax rate on incomes over $2 million by 1.75%, to a new rate of 15.05%. The money would be spent mostly on subsidies for electric vehicles and new charging stations, but the damage from higher taxes would soon be felt by all Californians. As the L.A. Times reported in April, 40% of all California personal income taxes are paid by only about one-half of one percent of state tax filers. When many other states have an income tax of zero, California shouldn’t risk the fiscal damage that would result from driving even more taxpayers out of the state. Vote NO on 30.
