With 13 months to the November 2022 election, numerous ballot initiatives already have been filed with the California Secretary of State’s Office.
On the ballot already are citizen-initiated measures related to legalizing sports betting on Native American lands, changes to medical malpractice lawsuits, plastic waste reduction, and banning flavored tobacco products.
Four ballot initiatives have been cleared by the state for signature gathering. They address an environmental and sustainability education initiative, prison rights, child dependency and custody hearings, and legalizing hallucinogenic mushrooms.
But 21 other ballot initiatives are with the state Attorney General’s Office, which is tasked with accepting public comments and issuing a title and summary for initiatives.
The Legislative Analyst Office is also reviewing the 21 proposals to produce a fiscal analysis of each. Once the AG’s office issues the title and summary for the proposals, their proponents have 180 days to collect the required number of signatures and file petitions with county election officials to get them on the ballot.
The majority are citizen-initiated state statutes . By law, they are required to receive enough signatures equal to 5% of the votes cast in the preceding gubernatorial election in order to qualify, or 623,212, according to Ballotpedia.
Two of the initiatives relate to creating Education Savings Accounts, though they differ in how the funds would be administered and implemented, in the dollar amount of the funds that would be made available, and how they could be spent. One is also more restrictive for home-schooling families.
The California Education Savings Accounts Initiative (#21-0006), known as the Educational Freedom Act, would create an education savings account program for parents whose children attend private or charter schools or who home-school.
It was submitted by the California School Choice Foundation, led by Michael Alexander, and several others.It would allow all K-12 students to enroll immediately in the program once it became law. Parents would receive $14,000 in the first year, and the amount would increase with inflation. The money could be spent at any accredited school, and home-schooling families could use the funds for educational expenses. It includes no cap on how much can be saved or rolled […]
PLEASE Help Us Fight the Good Fight
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. You will notice we do not bow to Big Tech by running Google or Facebook ads. So many in conservative media do because it’s lucrative, but I just can’t imagine taking a paycheck from the minions of evil. That’s why we’re so dependent on our readers to pay the bills and expand our reach.
If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page or via PayPal. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
