Position on Propositions
Your Vote and Voice Matters
With the November 3rd Election just around the corner we want to remind everyone to take the time to review your ballot. It is important that you understand the propositions and who the candidates are that you are voting for.
The Dinuba Chamber has taken a position on the following propositions:
Vote NO on Prop 15
Special interests are pushing Prop 15 – the LARGEST property tax hike in California history on the November ballot. This $11.5 billion-a-year tax hike will destroy Prop 13’s tax protections for business properties and make our economic crisis worse.
Every Californian will pay for Prop 15’s tax hike through higher prices on everything we buy and use.
What will Prop 15’s massive property tax hike lead to?
· More job losses at a time of record unemployment
· Higher rents for small businesses
· Higher property taxes for family farmers
Higher costs for groceries, clothes, health care, day care, utilities – basically everything!
Join the Dinuba Chamber of Commerce in opposing Prop 15, the $11.5 billion-a-year property tax hike on the November ballot.
Vote NO on Prop 21
Proposition 21, would expand local governments’ authority to enact rent control on residential property. This measure would harm small-business owners and their workers, devastate California’s economy and make the housing affordability crisis worse.
Vote YES on Prop 22 .
CalChamber believes supporting app-based drivers in the gig economy is critical to a diverse and robust economy. In light of the recent economic turmoil created by COVID-19, it is more important than ever to do everything possible to position our state for a robust comeback. Dinuba Chamber supports Prop 22, it’s good for business
