Reasons why to vote NO on Proposition 6:



Costly




Prop 6 proposes one billion dollars each year in spending with no revenues to pay for it - forcing cuts in healthcare, schools, fire protection and other vital programs.


Ineffective



Proposition 6 doesn’t put one more cop on the street. Instead, it guarantees billions of taxpayer dollars to unproven programs with no accountability.

Unproven



Prop 6 ignores and disrupts the progress of current effective crime prevention efforts of the Governor and State Legislature.

Wasteful



Prop. 6 is focused on the wrong priorities. It could take money away from schools and public safety and spend it instead on probation departments and prisons.

Dangerous



Prop. 6 would change existing law so more children as young as 14 years old will be tried as adults and relegated to the criminal justice system.
