In a word, “NO!” 

 This year in the Legislature we are facing unprecedented attacks on Proposition 13 coming from the parcel tax angle.  Upwards of nine Constitutional Amendments are seeking to lower voter thresholds on your properties from 2/3s to 55%.

 Additionally, one of the most serious threats to implementing a split roll tax (via non-uniform parcel taxes), SB 1021 (Wolk; D-Davis), has passed the Senate and is being considered by the Assembly.  That bill needs only a majority vote to pass and the partisan make-up of the Assembly is unfavorable in terms of elected officials potentially sympathetic to undermining these protections, unless we work hard to educate about the benefits of a uniform system.

 We must focus our efforts on these serious threats.
