Proposition 15, the effort to rewrite a portion of the infamous Proposition 13 and raise property taxes on commercial and agricultural properties, seems to be heading towards defeat. On election night, the No on Prop 15 Committee was pleased to be leading with slightly more than 51 percent of the vote opposing the measure. However, with millions of votes left to counted, no one felt comfortable calling it. After of this afternoon, with slightly more than four million votes remaining, the trends seem to be showing that the No on Prop 15 effort will likely hold its lead and defeat the measure.
The California Rice Industry Association and its partners in the Alliance of California Farmers and Ranchers significantly contributed to the effort through digital and radio ad buys.
