CA is going to vote to either save jobs or implement more global warming initiatives, what should they do?
The Secretary of State announced yesterday that the California Jobs Initiative will be Proposition 23 on the November ballot.
The qualification of this measure will now give Californians a chance to decide between saving California’s economy or sacrificing a million jobs and billions of dollars on new ineffective environmental regulations.
Sacramento politicians passed AB 32 which amounts to a new $60 billion energy tax that will kill jobs in California. It’s being implemented by legions of bureaucrats and a huge bureaucracy that admit it will do virtually nothing to solve global warming. Here’s the price tag we’re being asked to pay for an ill-conceived, flawed and ineffective proposal:
Over 1.1 million lost jobs (Sacramento State University Economist)
Up to 60 percent higher retail electricity rates (Southern California Public Power authority)
8 percent increase in natural gas costs (CARB)
$3.7 billion in higher gasoline and diesel costs (Sierra Research)
Possible $143 billion cap and trade auction tax to offset AB 32’s higher energy prices and job losses (CARB Economic Allocation and Advisory Committee)
NO ENERGY TAX. NO MORE LOST JOBS
That means a Yes vote on Proposition 23 would:
- Save more than one million jobs.
- Stop billions in higher energy costs.
- Stop higher car taxes.
- Avoid a $500 million water tax.
