Open States' stated mission is to improve civic engagement.

To be true to that goal, we can not stand by and be silent when a large portion of Americans face systemic racism and other forms of oppression. That oppression has meant being excluded from civic participation at the ballot box, being called un-American for peaceful protests, and being denied justice for crimes committed against them.

Please consider giving to local causes that support racial justice in your area.

County sales and use taxes: rate increase.

Abstract

The Bradley-Burns Uniform Local Sales and Use Tax Law (Bradley-Burns Law) authorizes a county and a city and county to impose a local sales and use tax, and similarly authorizes a city, located within a county imposing such a tax rate, to impose a local sales tax rate that is credited against the county rate. Existing law requires a city, county, or city and county imposing a local sales and use tax pursuant to the Bradley-Burns Law to contract with the State Board of Equalization to administer the local sales and use tax. Existing law authorizes a county or city and county to contract with the State Board of Equalization to establish a local transportation fund in the county treasury for the deposit of 14 of 1% of the revenues collected for the county or city and county under the Bradley-Burns Law for specified transportation purposes. This bill would authorize a county or city and county to impose an additional 14 of 1% sales and use tax rate under the Bradley-Burns Law. This bill would require a county or city and county that imposes this additional rate to deposit all revenues derived therefrom, less specified administrative costs, into a local transportation fund, as specified. This bill would also require a county or a city and county that imposes this additional tax to comply with the applicable voter-approval requirements of a specified provision of the California Constitution. The California Constitution authorizes the Governor to declare a fiscal emergency and to call the Legislature into special session for that purpose. The Governor issued a proclamation declaring a fiscal emergency, and calling a special session for this purpose, on December 1, 2008. This bill would state that it addresses the fiscal emergency declared by the Governor by proclamation issued on December 1, 2008, pursuant to the California Constitution. This bill would become operative only if Assembly Bill 2 of the 2009-10 First Extraordinary Session of the Legislature is chaptered
