Ballot Question 1:
Sierra Club Urges our members to vote NO
Repealing the State Income Tax would destroy the State’s ability to protect the environment
votenoma.com
While the Sierra Club understands that few people want to pay taxes, the income tax question on the ballot this fall is a reckless proposal that will have severe and immediate consequences for all of us. This binding referendum will take $12.7 billion—nearly 40 percent—out of the state budget, driving up local property taxes and leading to drastic cuts in services. Our communities will suffer sweeping cuts to environmental protection, parks maintenance, public transportation, as well as education, public safety personnel, social services to the needy and further deterioration of roads and bridges. Adopting this measure would be a foolhardy and counterproductive attempt to save money. For more information on the proposed tax cut, please visit www.votenoquestion1.com
