In 1978, when Howard Jarvis declared that he was mad as hell about rising property taxes in California, he started a tax revolt in the state. Thirty-eight years later, Jarvis’s Proposition 13 is still on the books in California, but the debate over its consequences remains.

Your Call: Is it time to reform Prop 13?

Jun 4, 2014

  

  On the next Your Call, we’ll talk about recent gains by the Democratic Party in California’s legislature.  Democrats have had the majority in California since 1970.  But 8 years later, Prop 13 came along, requiring 2/3 majority vote for any decision to raise taxes.  Now for the first time since Prop 13, the Democrats have a 2/3 majority.  So what will Democrats do with their new power? Join us at 10am Pacific or post a comment here.  What do you hope for California’s new congress? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
