The threatening cloud has passed away - at least for now.

Always looming on the horizon, has been the so-called "Taxpayer Protection and Accountability Act" which would, among other things, make it illegal to pass voter-initiatives with only a majority vote - and would take us back to the "bad old days" of requiring a 2/3 vote. There are many anti-democratic elements to the proposed measure which proponents wanted to be on the November 2022 ballot. BUT we learned in mid-May that the proponents had withdrawn the measure for 2022 (although threatening to keep it alive, of course). But this extreme anti-tax measure has met with such a barrage of opposition from every city and county throughout the state that we are optimistic that even if it does return, it will not be successful. Stay tuned.
