California holds the unwelcome distinction of having one of the highest poverty rates in the country. We also have some of the highest taxes in the country. In the middle of the worst economic downturn in generations, now is not the time for a massive tax increase that will only create more financial hardship for California businesses, workers and families already struggling to survive.
The Sacramento region is working diligently to regain its footing after COVID-19 swept the nation. One of the key projects to our regional recovery is the Davis Innovation and Sustainability Campus, made possible through the passage of proposed Measure B.
