The AALA PAC recommended support for Proposition 30 and opposition to Proposition 32 and the voters in the state concurred. After a whirlwind campaign by Governor Brown and a few tense hours on election night, Proposition 30 finally received the majority vote near midnight. The new law will increase personal income taxes for individuals earning over $250,000 and increase sales taxes by ¼ percent. This is the first tax increase that voters have supported since 2004 and sends a message that the people of the State of California are willing to invest in public education. Proposition 30 constitutionally appropriates all revenues gained from the temporary taxes to Proposition 98 and to K-12 school districts, county offices of education, charter schools and community colleges. Neither the Governor nor the Legislature has discretion over the use of these funds.
