Prop 15: The Risks & Rewards For Schools & Businesses — A Voter Game Plan Event

Online Prop 15 will change the rules so that commercial property taxes will be based on current market values — meaning a likely jump in taxes, and thus, more revenue for local governments and school districts. The outcome of this measure will have an impact on both the economy and public education.

Online Since 1996, Proposition 209 has prohibited the state from considering race, ethnicity and gender in hiring and contracting for all government-run institutions, and for admissions to public universities. Proposition 16 on the ballot this November would repeal it.

The Future Of Local News (Part 2)

Cashing In On The Desert: Dark Side Of The American Dream

For decades, Californians have been obsessed with trying to profit off desert land.

For over 60 years, real estate developers have sold a dream here: If you buy land now, you will get rich one day. Thousands of people believed this dream, but much of the land they bought was nearly worthless.
