Naw, not me.
George Skelton at the LA Times makes some suggestions on how to fix California's broken government ... He says California suffers from a basic dysfunction: Do we want local or state control? That brings Proposition 13 into the discussion:
"* Realign state and local responsibilities. Return to the separate roles that were played productively through most of the 20th century until Proposition 13 messed things up three decades ago.
Easy. This isn't an argument about Prop. 13's low residential property tax rates, although I'd argue that big business hasn't been paying its fair share. It's about the unintended consequences of shifting more power over local policy and tax revenue from the communities to Sacramento. It's also about the need to relieve the state's financial burden. The locals should regain control over services and take back the responsibility for financing them. That probably means making it easier for them to raise taxes."
