For background on Proposition 30, an analysis by the legislative analyst, endorsements for and against the measure, and more...
Wildfires are devastating California. Prop. 30 taxes only the wealthiest Californians—annual income over $2 million—to fund wildfire prevention and clean air programs. Funds forest management, more firefighters and equipment. Helps consumers afford zero-emission vehicles; creates statewide charging network. STRICT ACCOUNTABILITY—audits, penalties. State firefighters, environmental groups, energy experts support.
Prop. 30 raises taxes by up to $90 billion for as long as 20 years, increasing costs for every Californian. Prop. 30 will severely strain our struggling electricity grid already at risk of rolling blackouts. Join taxpayers, teachers, and small businesses to reject this unnecessary tax increase. No on Prop. 30!
