From the Platform

Freedom, Justice and Crime

We call for the defense and extension of the liberties guaranteed in the Bill of Rights, including freedom of speech, press, assembly and association, and the right to keep and bear arms for individual and collective defense. The ultimate guarantee of those rights is the organized strength of the working class.

Capitalism and poverty breed crime and repression. Working class people are the primary victims both of street crime and of police reaction to it. The bosses use laws against victimless activities, "legal" and illegal expansion of police powers, military and paramilitary occupation of poor and minority communities, and diversion of resources to police and jails, to keep workers intimidated and dependent.

No on 22 - Transportation & Local Government Funding PDF Print E-mail

Official Title and Summary

Initiative Constitutional Amendment
Prohibits the State from Borrowing or Taking Funds Used for Transportation, Redevelopment, or Local Government Projects and Services.

  • Prohibits the State, even during a period of severe fiscal hardship, from delaying the distribution of tax revenues for transportation, redevelopment, or local government projects and services.

Summary of Legislative Analyst's Estimate of Net State and Local Government Fiscal Impact:

Due to restrictions on state authority over fuel and property taxes, the state would have to take alternative actions--probably in the range of $1 billion to several billion annually. This would result in both:

  • Reduction in General Fund program spending and/or increases in state revenues of those amounts.
  • Comparable increases in transportation and redevelopment resources.

Peace and Freedom Party Position

We are opposed to Proposition 22.
