Your Call Election Special: Proposition C debate on business taxes for homeless services
Every Wednesday through Election Day on November 6th, Rose Aguilar will host a special second hour of Your Call at 11am focusing on California's crucial races, propositions, and regional measures.
This week, we’ll host a debate on San Francisco’s Proposition C. The measure would raise taxes on large businesses by an average of a half-percent to fund homeless services.
We’ll also discuss similar measures in other Bay Area cities. This November, East Palo Alto will weigh a parcel tax on commercial office space. Mountain View proposes a new progressive business license tax, earmarking about 10% of revenue for affordable housing.
