Red Alert: SB231

C.A.R. OPPOSES EFFORT TO BYPASS VOTERS

stormwaterRedAlert

C.A.R. opposes SB 231 (Hertzberg), a bill that would bypass voter approval requirement for property-related fee and tax increases. SB 231 would redefine the word "sewer" for the purposes of Proposition 218 (Right to Vote on Taxes Act), which was approved by California voters in 1996. This will allow local governments to tax property owners directly for costs related to stormwater infrastructure projects without the legally required voter approval.

Prop. 218, The Right to Vote on Taxes Initiative, requires all new property-related taxes, assessments, and most fees to be approved by the voters. There is a limited exception for charges for garbage, water, and sewer services. SB 231 would greatly expand the definition of "sewer" to include storm drainage, effectively eliminating the Prop. 218 voter approval requirement for stormwater management projects.

C.A.R. opposes SB 231 because it would allow for local governments to impose new taxes without voter approval in violation of voter-approve Proposition 218. Notwithstanding the merits of a particular project, Proposition 218 gave the decision-making authority for funding to the voters and the voters should be the ones to decide.

Please ask your Assembly Member to Vote No on SB 231. Learn how you can take action and get involved.
