The Local Voter Control & Government Accountability Act
November 16, 2009
This measure amends the Constitution to lower to 55 percent the voter approval requirement for all local bonds and special taxes, provided these measures comply with certain new conditions. The new vote threshold would apply to special taxes proposed by all local governments (cities, counties, special districts, redevelopment agencies, transportation authorities, and K-14 school and community college districts) and for bonds proposed by noneducation local governments.
