No on 1A

Vote NO to keep a lid on this rapacious state government.

1A extends the sales and income tax hike by 2 years.
California already has the highest income AND sales taxes...
AND the highest tax base.

Yes on 1A and 1B.

If California does not properly fund education, jobs will go to places with a more educated workforce and with them the tax base the state needs to balance the budget.

I don't see any reason to vote yes on the other props.
