    State Propositions

    Proposition 1 Reproductive Freedom
    Amends California Constitution to expressly include an individual's fundamental right to reproductive freedom, which includes the fundamental right to choose to have an abortion and the fundamental right to choose or refuse contraceptives. This amendment does not narrow or limit the existing rights to privacy and equal protection under the California Constitution. Fiscal Impact: No direct fiscal effect because reproductive rights already are protected by state law.

    Proposition 26 Sports Betting in Casinos
    Also allows: sports wagering at certain horseracing tracks; private lawsuits to enforce certain gambling laws. Directs revenues to General Fund, problem-gambling programs, enforcement. Fiscal Impact: Increased state revenues, possibly reaching tens of millions of dollars annually. Some of these revenues would support increased state regulatory and enforcement costs that could reach the low tens of millions of dollars annually.

    Proposition 27 Online Sports Betting
    Allows Indian tribes and affiliated businesses to operate online/ mobile sports wagering outside tribal lands. Directs revenues to regulatory costs, homelessness programs, nonparticipating tribes. Fiscal Impact: Increased state revenues, possibly in the hundreds of millions of dollars but not likely to exceed $500 million annually. Some revenues would support state regulatory costs, possibly reaching the mid-tens of millions of dollars annually.

    Proposition 28 Funding Arts and Music Education
    Provides additional funding from state General Fund for arts and music education in all K+12 public schools (including charter schools). Fiscal Impact: Increased state costs of about $1 billion annually, beginning next year, for arts education in public schools.

    Proposition 29 Kidney Dialysis Clinics
    Requires physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant on site during treatment. Requires clinics to: disclose physicians' ownership interests; report infection data. Fiscal Impact: Increased state and local government costs likely in the tens of millions of dollars annually.

    Proposition 30 Income Tax on Millionaires for Electric Cars
    Allocates tax revenues to zero-emission vehicle purchase incentives, vehicle charging stations, and wildfire prevention. Fiscal Impact: Increased state tax revenue ranging from $3.5 billion to $5 billion annually, with the new funding used to support zero-emission vehicle programs and wildfire response and prevention activities.

    Proposition 31 Yes or No to Banning Flavored Tobacco Products
    A "Yes" vote approves, and a "No" vote rejects, a 2020 law prohibiting retail sale of certain flavored tobacco products. Fiscal Impact: Decreased state tobacco tax revenues ranging from tens of millions of dollars annually to around $100 million annually.

    Local Measures

    Measure M Cannabis Business Advisory Measure -- City of Pacific Grove (Majority Approval Required)
    Should the Pacific Grove City Council be authorized to amend the Municipal Code to allow retail sales of medical or recreational cannabis, limited to one single location within the City, at a location no closer than 1000 feet from any existing licensed Daycare/Preschools, Youth Center, and Schools, to engage in commercial cannabis activities?

    Measure N Cannabis Business Tax -- City of Pacific Grove (Majority Approval Required)
    To fund general municipal expenses such as police, fire, roads and recreation, and for unrestricted general fund purposes, shall an ordinance be adopted establishing a City excise tax on cannabis businesses (which includes hemp) at an annual rate not to exceed 6% of gross receipts for retail and delivery cannabis businesses, which is expected to generate an estimated $300,000 annually and will be levied until repealed by the voters?

    Measure O Charter Amendment -- City of Pacific Grove (Majority Approval Required)
    Shall the Pacific Grove City Charter requirement for six elected City Councilmembers be changed to four elected Councilmembers via this sequence: (1) in 2024 two Councilmembers shall be elected to four-year terms, and one shall be elected to a single two-year term, (2) every two years thereafter, beginning in 2026, two Councilmembers shall be elected to four-year terms, with other revisions for votes needed for a quorum, a majority vote and other select actions?

    Measure Q Childcare Initiative -- County of Monterey (Majority Approval Required)
    Shall an Initiative Measure to amend Title 5 of the Code of the County of Monterey to establish an annual special parcel tax in the amount of forty-nine ($49) dollars on each parcel located within Monterey County, for a period of ten (10) years, in order to establish childcare in Monterey County, with revenue generated in the estimated amount of $5.5 million annually used solely to increase and improve affordable childcare be adopted?
