If you think taxes in California are not high enough, wait for Initiative 13-0002
Posted By CotoBlogzz
Rancho Santa Margarita, CA - If you think that taxes in California are not high enough, wait for initiative 13-0002. The Attorney General of California prepared the following title and summary of the chief purpose and points of the proposed measure being advanced by Harrison J. Tibbetts:
TAX ON OIL AND NATURAL GAS. REVENUES TO EDUCATION, CLEAN ENERGY,
COUNTY INFRASTRUCTURE AND SERVICES, AND STATE PARKS. INITIATIVE
Imposes 9.5% tax on value of oil and natural gas extracted in California. During
first ten years, allocates revenues: 60% to education for classroom instruction (split equally
between UC, CSU, community colleges, and K-12 schools); 22% to clean energy projects and
research; 15% to counties for infrastructure and public health and safety services; 3% to state
parks. Thereafter, allocates 80% to education, 15% to counties, and 5% to state parks. Prohibits
passing tax on to consumers through higher fuel prices.
Consider that a number school reformists such as Matt Candler, claim that the public school system is broken and have proposed viable alternatives, while others such as Sugata Mitra, Professor of Education Technology at Newcastle University, who wants to build a school in the Cloud posits that the public school system is not broken – it is simple an anachronism.
Whether one thinks the public system is broken or simply not applicable to the 21st century, the facts are that providing more funds to public education, whether K-12 or the university system is like providing free hamburgers to an already obese population.
And who is Harrison J. Tibbetts anyway? His LinkedIn account states that he is
Campaign Manager at Californians for Responsible Economic Development. A cursory search for non-profit organizations do not show an entry for an organization titled Californians for Responsible Economic Development. The same account indicates that Mr. Tibbetts is an intern with the Office of Congressman Mike Thompson (D) California.
