Contrary to hype by many elected officials who stand to have less of your money than they previously anticipated, I-1033 doesn’t demand cutting of anyone’s overall revenue.
The 2009 Online Voters’ Guide describes the initiative as a measure that “would limit growth of certain state, county and city revenue to annual inflation and population growth, not including voter-approved revenue increases.” I-1033 does not demand cuts, it only demands limited growth.
So elected officials in cities, counties etc. would adjust taxes/revenue as the economy went up or down. They would also be free to make adjustments for population growth. And if they thought it necessary to raise taxes beyond that they level would have to get voter approval.
Government has grown too large on the earnings of you and I. It’s time for us to tell government to live within their means just like the rest of us.
Initiative 1033 would put very mild and reasonable limits on government growth.
YES on I-1033
