Important Information About November Ballot Proposals

Please note that the Ballot Proposal language that will appear on the November ballot is only a SUMMARY of the proposal. Unfortunately, the summaries that you will see on the ballot are generally akin to marketing platitudes that may or may not mask important details specific to the proposal. As with most things in life, the devil is in the details. If you are interested in the ACTUAL changes that will be made as a result of your vote, please visit the PETITION for each proposal which can be found at the Secretary of State Board of State Canvassers web page.
Every bill that comes before the legislature features one or more bill summaries provided by legislative analysts. Before I vote on a bill in the Senate, however, I read the ACTUAL bill. I refer to the bill summaries only if something is not clear upon reading the actual bill.
Due to the abundance of ballot proposals this election, you now have a choice to make as a citizen. Will you take the advice of former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and wait to pass the bill before you see what's inside or will you READ THE BILL before casting your vote?
If you choose to read the bill first, please visit the petition language that can be found at the following Secretary of State web page:,4670,7-127-1633_41221---,00.html.

Support of Proposal 1 is very important.... Just the THREAT that the State can step in forces Municipalities to GET THEIR ACT TOGETHER or face the consequences. NO LONGER would/should one city be allowed to continue failed Liberal policies and EXTORT MONEY from the rest of their County and/or the State to continually bail them out while continuing to mis-manage their Budgets!!!!


Proposal 3 is going to NECESSARILY SKYROCKET your Electric costs on the State level, just as Obama and the Liberals are purposefully doing on the National level. When every Liberal has Solar Panels on their OWN roof and a Windmill in their OWN backyard, then they can tell the rest of us what to do. Let them bare the burden of the costs of the energy they wish, not impose the increases upon ALL of us so they can pretend to care!


Proposal 4 is particularly UNJUST.... The Unions want to force MEDIC-AID recipients (those receiving MedicAid, for taking care of a home-bound loved one) to have some of their MedicAid money diverted to the Union. The Unions CANNOT negotiate MedicAid rules/payments, they just want to extort the funds from people they will NOT protect or provide any benefit to! LAWS provide protections for the care-giver and the one receiving care, the Union has NO PLACE there!
