7:46 am
7:47 am
you are watching today in the bay. >> welcome back. while californians attempt to make sense of the presidential campaign, we also will need to decide many other races, including ballot issues. this november, the voters will face at least 17 state propositions, that's the largest number since 2000. larry joins us this morning. thank you for clarifying these overwhelming issues. why are these 17 so important? >> you need a score card. >> yeah. >> you need a score card. almost all the state wide ballot prepizati propositions where people and groups go to gather enough signatures to place issues before the voters. many are very contentious questions. so hot that the legislature won't deal with them, frankly. this time experts estimate that supports and opponents will spend between 500 and $600
7:48 am
million trying to convince the voters to pass or defeat these proposals. a lot at stake. >> of course, it depends on the voter, the person. but to you, which stand out as the most significant? >> most of these are hot potatoes. we can divide them into three types, social, tax and let's call them government reform issues. >> okay. let's start, let's talk about some of the tax issues. that matters to a lot us. >> it's often more than our hearts. there are two major tax propos l proposals. proposition 55 would continue for 12 years the income tax sir charges with annual income s exceeding $250,000. it was passed in 2012 and expiring 2018. the you are new version would st of the money on public education. the other major tax preposition deals with tobacco. that would add $2 per pack to
7:49 am
the state's tobacco tax. with the funds earmarked for tobacco research and law enforcement. $2 a pack, guess what, california currently ranks 35th of the 50 states in the tax. >> what about social issues represented in november? >> we talk about those a lot at the water cooler. these are the things that really divide people. >> or don't talk about. >> or don't talk about, yeah. we have several. here is what i would call the big three. marijuana legalization. it's the subject of proposition 64 which would allow use by anyone over 21 years of age and taxed for purchases at 15%. if this sounds familiar, guess what, it's because a similar ballot proposition was narrowly defeated in 2010. proposition 63, that focuses on firearms and ammunition. it would prohibit large capacity ammunition magazines and tighten
7:50 am
gun purchase requirements. two weeks ago governor brown signed six gun control bills. the sponsors of this proposal say, this -- the new laws don't go far enough. these laws go farther. the death penalty, of course, has drawn two initiatives. that's the third major area. proposition 62 would replace the death penalty with mandatory life in prison. on the other side, proposition 66 would speed up the time line for imposing the death penalty when it has been ordered by a judge or a jury. what happens if both pass? >> sounds confusing. sounds like an oxymoron, like they would cancel each other out. >> whichever proposition gets the most votes, that's the one that carries. the other one does not. >> that's interesting to note. before we let you go, there are some issues that would reform the government. >> yeah. government reform issues. one is an old topic. one is a new topic.
7:51 am
