Prop 15 is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to close a tax loophole used by a handful of wealthy corporations and reclaim $12b every year towards California’s future. We need all hands on deck to talk with our communities about Prop 15.

YES ON 15:

  • Exempts homeowners, renters, and agriculture so they continue to be fully protected by Prop 13
  • Reclaims $12 billion per year in schools, community colleges, and local community services
  • 10% of the biggest corporate property owners will pay 92% of the funding
  • Gives small businesses reviving our economy tax breaks to hire back workers and grow
  •  Prioritizes transparency and accountability by requiring public disclosure of all new revenues and how they are spent.
