RED ALERT: SB 231 Allows Property Owners to Be TAXED WITHOUT a Vote so URGE YOUR ASSEMBLY MEMBER TO VOTE “NO”! Call Today. Vote could be on Monday!

The state Assembly will be voting on legislation that allows local governments to circumvent the State Constitution and Proposition 218 to tax property owners directly for costs related to stormwater infrastructure projects without the legally required voter approval. The California Association of REALTORS® opposes SB 231 because it uses legal “sleight of hand” to allow local governments to impose new taxes without required voter input. The bill will be considered by the ENTIRE Assembly as soon as Monday, June 19th.

Action Item:

Call your Assembly Member TODAY!

Urge a NO Vote on SB 231

Call 1-800-798-6593 - Do not use your NRDS ID.

Enter the PIN Number associated with the assembly member followed by the # sign to be connected to your legislator's office.

When staff answers the phone, you can use the following script:

"Hi, this is (insert your name). I'm a REALTOR at SRAR. Please ask the Assembly Member to Vote No on SB 231. Don’t allow local governments to impose sewer taxes by side-stepping voters.”

Talking Points:

1. SB 231 is an attempt to impose TAXES without voter approval. Proponents claim the bill only seeks to attach a definition to the term “sewers.” In reality, the bill is nothing more than legal “trickery” to get around having to get voter approval for a new tax.

2. SB 231 is a blatant attempt to circumvent the will of the voters. SB 231 ignores the will and mandate of the voters, by creating an expansive definition of the word ‘sewer’ that is neither consistent with public policy, the intent of the voters, nor the plain meaning of the word.

3. Voters SHOULD have the ability to approve or deny paying for larger infrastructure projects. Notwithstanding the merits of a particular project, Proposition 218 gave the decision-making authority for funding to the voters. And the voters should be the ones to decide.
