For background on Proposition 27, an analysis by the legislative analyst, endorsements for and against the measure, and more...
Proposition 27 is supported by California Tribes and homelessness and mental health experts. For the first time, Prop. 27 PERMANENTLY funds housing, mental health and addiction treatment by regulating and taxing online sports betting. Prop. 27 contains strict rules protecting minors, regular audits, and oversight by the Attorney General.
Prop. 27 is a deceptive scheme funded by out-of-state gambling corporations to legalize a massive expansion of online and mobile sports gambling. Prop. 27 is NOT a "solution" to homelessness. 90% of profits would go to out-of-state corporations. Prop. 27 is opposed by 50+ California Tribes. Vote NO on 27.
