  • Californians should vote no on Prop. 31

    Aug 25, 2022

    By Jon Coupal California has a lot of problems and not all of them are directly taxpayer related. But, as noted in last week’s column, they all interconnect in one important way: Control. Our state’s government and its boosters think they know better than you. They know better how to spend your money. They know better how to use your land. They know what’s best for you. And, if you disagree, the nanny state will just make it illegal. Look no further than Proposition 31 on this November’s ballot. It’s a referendum on Senate Bill 793, the state...
