June 1978
New Republic;6/3/78, Vol. 178 Issue 22, p5
The article focuses on the Jarvis-Gann Initiative, a proposed amendment to the California Constitution on June 6, 1978. An increase in the inflation rate on housing costs has been a problem in California ever since. The state is known to be most efficient in the real estate assessors in the nation. The amendment was also known as Proposition 13 passed by Howard Jarvis. It would trigger the state to possibly increase income taxes in order to compromise with tax cut reductions. Variety of arguments for tax cuts was cited by the Jarvis-Gann backers that it would benefit the handicapped and the elderly.
