PROTECT PROPOSITION 13 - OPPOSE ACA 13
Assembly Constitutional Amendment 13 (Ward; D- San Diego and Rivas; D-Salinas), seeks to limit the initiative process by shifting the power to raise the voter threshold for new and higher taxes away from voters and to the Legislature. ACA 13 is a last minute attack on Proposition 13 sponsored by the same public employee union group that spent almost $100M on Prop. 15 in 2020 – a Split Roll Property tax measure which we helped defeat.
ACA 13 is meant to protect the recent court decisions that have removed the two-thirds tax vote thresholds on your properties. Most recently this loophole was used to pass Measure ULA in the City of Los Angeles, an $800M per year tax on apartments and commercial properties.
ACA 13 is a brazen attempt to change the Constitution to stop the CBPA co-sponsored Taxpayer Protection and Government Accountability Act, which has qualified for the November 2024 ballot and will restore the two-thirds vote requirement on special taxes, fixing the Upland Loophole and protecting against future attempts at creating a Split Roll tax.
On September 14, 2023, ACA 13 passed the Legislature.
