    That is the property tax law in MI, when you buy a new home you pay 1/2 of the assessed value= taxable value.

    That law should not of been changed. I agree with:
    Arguments
    Rep. David Chiu (D-17) said he opposed the initiative:[16]

    “ It doesn’t add housing, and it is going to make it harder for cities and counties to pay for schools, infrastructure and public safety to the tune of $2 billion per year. We’re in the midst of the most intense housing crisis our state has ever experienced, and this proposal does nothing to address it.[8]
    Laura Clark, executive director of YIMBY Action, criticized the measure, saying:[16]

    “ We’re talking about, once again, another tax giveaway to people who are wealthy.[8]

    It was not presented as a tax issue so much as it was as a bad alternative----sure you can cut taxes.....if you want the front end of your car ripped off by potholes under bridges about to collapse on top of you.

    Such a false choice here. Nice straw man....either raise taxes or bridges will collapse right on top of you.

    Assembly Bill 302, sponsored by Assemblyman Marc Berman, D-Palo Alto, would require the California Community College system to make their college parking system accessible overnight to any enrolled student in good standing. State law already requires that community colleges provide homeless students with access to shower facilities on campus.


    Under Cuesta’s current ordinance, overnight parking is not allowed on campus. While Cuesta doesn’t have immediate statistics, there have been a handful of reports of students sleeping in cars over the past couple years, according to Cuesta College officials.

    There is no raise in taxes as I can see, just not cuts.
