Governor Jerry Brown on Wednesday turned down a challenge from the mayor of Los Angeles to significantly change Proposition 13, saying he would prefer to focus his attention on bringing financial stability to California.
Brown was responding to comments by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who has been pushing the notion of removing tax protections afforded to all Californians in order to implement a split roll property tax to raise taxes on commercial properties.
We applaud the Governor for understanding the sophistry of such a scheme and staying focused on policies that will help California recover by making our state friendlier to business investment. Click here to read the full story.

The forces that want to raise your property taxes are relentless and don’t let fact get in the way. We know this activity is preceding another push for a statewide initiative to undo Proposition 13’s protections and will remain vigilant.
We need your help in that too by answering false statements about the law and supporting efforts, such as the Californians Against Higher Property Taxes, which fights on your behalf against such attacks.
