Rebuttal to Argument in Favor of Proposition 39
Incredible! The very heart of the Arguments FOR Proposition 39 are about provisions NOT IN PROPOSITION 39!
Provisions NOT IN 39:
– NO watchdog committees.
– NO election rules.
– NO limits on property tax increases.
The ENTIRE SECTION titled "More Protections for Taxpayers and Homeowners" is NOT IN 39! These provisions were added by 39's promoters in the Legislature AFTER 39 was filed. They can be removed or changed anytime WITHOUT VOTER APPROVAL.
United States Justice Foundation Executive Director Gary Kreep certifies:
The Watchdog Committees, Election Rules and Tax Limitations referenced in the promoters' Arguments are not in 39. Therefore, these provisions may be waived anytime without voter approval."
These "Special Provisions" risks are unnecessary! GOOD BONDS PASS NOW. Since 1996, 62% passed, with two-thirds voter approval. $13 Billion worth! Do you really want every bond, good bad, approved? Each bond creates a new lien on your home, usually for 30 years.
Remember, PROPOSITION 39 has NO PROPERTY TAX LIMITS. Meaning:
"Proposition 39 could realistically lead to actions more than doubling current property taxes, putting them back to pre-1978 levels."
