PROP 53 IS DECEPTIVELY WRITTEN
The truth is that it’s one multi-millionaire’s attempt to play politics by twisting the system in his own interest, and the unintended consequences could be devastating.
A DISASTER WAITING TO HAPPEN
Prop 53 has no exemption for disasters. It could restrict our ability to prepare for, or rebuild after, an earthquake or other natural disaster, causing communities like ours to wait months—or even years—before rebuilding.
REMOVES LOCAL CONTROL
Prop 53 would subject critical local projects to a statewide vote by outsiders. It would remove local control over local infrastructure.
A THREAT TO UNION JOBS
Prop 53 will kill needed projects and put union jobs and good wages in danger for everyone. Make no mistake, it’s a direct attack on workers like us. That's why your union local and the California Labor Federation are opposed to Prop 53.
