The Taxpayer Protection Act will Require Voters to Approve Measure ULA In Compliance with the Constitution.
At the same time, politicians, bureaucrats, and special interests continue to make it harder for Californians to make ends meet. In 2023 alone, the State Legislature proposed $203.7 billion in higher taxes and fees.
Recently, Measure ULA – the City of LA’s new transfer tax – is a prime example of the need for the Taxpayer Protection and Government Accountability Act (TPA). Utilizing the court-created “Upland Loophole,” which changed the vote requirement for citizen-backed special taxes from two-thirds to a majority, Measure ULA passed with only 57.7% voter approval – allowing special interests to skirt the two-thirds voter threshold.
Most importantly, TPA contains a strategic “look back” provision which requires any tax measure enacted after January 1, 2022, (including Measure ULA) to go back to the voters for two-thirds voter approval within one year of enactment or it becomes invalidated.
As all levels of government and the public employee unions demand more revenues with little oversight or accountability, this initiative will give all Californians the final decision on new and higher taxes they are willing to pay that ultimately determines the cost of living for their families.
