  • Proposition 218 - 1,370 words
    ... r of opponents say it is just plain bad law . Others objected to the voting rights it gives to all property owners, whether or not they are US citizens. With respect to the fiscal effect and the resultant level of services, the legislative analyst (who is neutral) brought forth the overall expected loss of revenue to local governments at $100 million plus a year.
