Here's my take on how you should vote on the various propositions that will be on the ballot in November, 2005.
Yes! on Proposition 73 -- Waiting Period and Parental Notification Before Termination of Minor's Pregnancy. Initiative Constitutional Amendment.
Yes! on Proposition 74 -- Public School Teachers. Waiting Period for Permanent Status. Dismissal. Initiative Statute.
Yes! on Proposition 75 -- Public Employee Union Dues. Restrictions on Political Contributions. Employee Consent Requirement. Initiative Statute.
Yes! on Proposition 76 -- State Spending and School Funding Limits. Initiative Constitutional Amendment.
Yes! on Proposition 77 -- Redistricting. Initiative Constitutional Amendment.
Soft yes on Proposition 78 -- Discounts on Prescription Drugs. Initiative Statute.
Soft no on Proposition 79 -- Prescription Drug Discounts. State-Negotiated Rebates. Initiative Statute.
Both 78 and 79 look confusing and bloated, I doubt we need either.
No! on Proposition 80 -- Electric Service Providers. Regulation. Initiative Statute.
