Tax proposals may crowd the November ballot
Ventura County Star

You may have a very real sense this fall that there is a hand reaching out from your November ballot in search of your wallet.

There are at least four statewide tax initiatives that appear to be gaining enough support to make it on the ballot. At least two local cities, Ventura and Santa Paula, are floating proposals for local sales tax increases. And the Ventura County Transportation Commission is continuing to build its case for a separate increase in the sales tax.

If they all pass, we will all pay more in taxes in 2017.
