Proposition 68: The measure would let the state borrow $4 billion through general obligation bonds for parks, water infrastructure and conservation projects. It includes more than $1.2 billion to build and improve state and local parks. It would also authorize $550 million to guard communities against flooding and $200 million to help preserve the shrinking Salton Sea.
Proposition 69: The measure would amend the state constitution to require money raised from a new diesel tax and from vehicle fees to be spent on transportation projects.
Proposition 70: This proposition would require the Legislature to vote in 2024 on how to allocate revenue from the cap-and-trade program, which generates billions of dollars annually by requiring polluters to buy permits to release greenhouse gases.
Proposition 71: The measure would change the effective date for propositions from the day after the election to five days after election results are certified. This amendment to the state constitution pushes the effective start date for voter-enacted policies back about six weeks. Backers say it would ensure all votes are counted before new policies are enacted.
Proposition 72: The proposition would amend the state constitution to let Californians install rain-capture devices without increasing their property taxes even though they enhance property values. Supporters say the tax break would encourage people to install the water-saving devices, which can be helpful in a state prone to drought.
Combined, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties have around 11 million of California’s 25.1 million eligible voters.
