Question                                                   Answer


Is the initiative an extension of Proposition 30?


Yes. This initiative temporarily extends the income tax rates on the wealthiest Californians created under Prop 30.

Revenues from the extension will increase funding for public schools and colleges, increase revenues in the Rainy Day Fund, while at the same time freeing up dollars in the general fund and, if certain criteria are met, increasing funding towards health care.


Are the taxes temporary, like the current Prop 30?


Yes. The current Prop 30 income tax rates would be temporarily extended for 12 years.


Does the initiative continue the Prop 30 sales tax increase?



No. The quarter-­?cent sales tax increase will expire in 2016.


How much revenue will this initiative bring in?



An estimated $8-­?11 billion annually.


Where do the revenues from the initiative go?


Simply -­? the extension revenues do 3 things:


1.        Increase funding for public schools and colleges

2.       Increase funding into rainy day fund

3.        By helping the state to meet and expand its obligation to schools and colleges, the initiative frees up budget dollars to be spent on healthcare and other priorities.


Does the initiative increase funding for education and the Prop 98 guarantee - the public education spending requirement?


Yes. Revenues will continue to be deposited into the Education Protection Account, a special fund that goes to fund K-­?12 public schools and community colleges. These funds will be used to help students by reducing class sizes, updating textbooks, hiring new teachers and help to keep tuition costs from skyrocketing - not administrative costs.
