ACTION ALERT: Oppose SB 86 and AB 102 – Board of Equalization Overhaul
Governor Brown released a plan on Monday morning to overhaul the Board of Equalization through SB 86 and AB 102. These bills will be voted on TOMORROW.
BizFed supports reforms to the Board of Equalization (BOE) and supported AB 1210 which sought to address identified problems in the BOE by the Department of Finance. However, Governor Brown’s new proposal would overhaul the Board of Equalization, far beyond the problems identified by the Department of Finance, and place many taxpayer protections in the hands of unelected bureaucrats instead of an elected body.
Take action now by calling your local representatives, encouraging your State Assemblymember to vote NO on SB 86 and State Senator to vote NO on AB 102. You can find your local representatives and their contact information by clicking here.
