Asm. Jay Obernolte: Taxpayer Update

Transparency is a vital part of ensuring government accountability. Unfortunately, some lawmakers disagree. A Senator from San Francisco just gutted and amended a bill that would repeal a measure I authored in 2017.

My bill, AB 195, passed unanimously and required the ballot statement of any local ordinance that would increase a tax to include the total amount it will raise annually, the tax rate, and the duration of the tax. Californians should know if a ballot initiative would increase their taxes.

There was an attempt last year to end this important voter protection that was defeated and I will fight to stop this year’s attempt as well.

It is an honor to represent you.

Assemblyman Jay Obernolte,  33RD ASSEMBLY DISTRICT
