Proposition 30: The schools and local public safety protection act of 2012

Proposition 30, a revenue-raising initiative on the Nov. 6, 2012 ballot, would amend the California Constitution to increase the state’s sales tax by a quarter-cent for four years and increase personal income tax rates on incomes above $250,000 (above $500,000 for joint filers) for seven years. The measure would also guarantee that local governments continue to receive the share of tax revenues transferred to them in 2011 to pay for certain public safety programs.
