U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer voted early today in Riverside, and likely cast her vote for a host of statewide propositions on the November ballot.
But after dropping off her ballot, Boxer did not say how she weighed in on five of those measures — propositions 21, 22, 24, 25 and 26. She already has taken a public stance on propositions 19, 20, 23 and 27.
“Well I have taken a position on the major propositions, but we’ll be working on all of those and will be putting some information out on that,” Boxer said at a news conference.
Prop. 21 would charge car owners an extra $18 a year to help pay for state parks and wildlife programs. Prop. 22 deals with funds for transportation and local government. Among its provisions, Prop. 22 would prohibit the state from borrowing from funds used for transportation, local government and redevelopment agencies.
Prop. 24 would repeal recent changes to state tax law that allows some businesses to pay less in taxes. Prop. 25 would eliminate the two-thirds requirement in the Legislature to approve state budgets.
Prop. 26 also deals with taxes and fees. If approved, the proposition would treat many state and local fees as taxes that require a two-thirds vote by lawmakers to take effect.
The campaign of Republican Carly Fiorina criticized Boxer for not being forthcoming on how she voted on those propositions.
