YES Campaign TV Ad Misleading on Prop. 1D and 1E

By: NO on Prop. 1D & 1E

SACRAMENTO, April 24, 2009 – As the May 19 special election draws near, voters are beginning to get hit with a lot of deceptive and misleading information regarding the ballot measures, including Prop. 1D (children's services) and Prop. 1E (mental health programs).

A new television ad by Budget Reform Now says that the propositions are a way to provide "budget stability" and "hold politicians accountable."

"These statements aren't true," said Dave Fratello, Campaign Manager for NO on Prop. 1D & 1E. "Prop. 1D & 1E take money out of voter-approved mental health and children's programs, then put that money into the state general fund. These measures then allow the Legislature and the Governor to spend that money with none of the accountability required by the original, voter-approved initiatives," said Fratello. "Furthermore, the money taken won't be repaid."

"The 'yes on everything' also has another thing backwards. The ad says that these propositions provide a chance for 'us voters to clean things up.' The truth is, Prop. 1D & 1E go directly against what the voters demanded a few years ago when they passed Proposition 10 and Proposition 63," said Fratello. "Voting NO on 1D & 1E keeps the voters' original intent intact."

Proposition 1D will divert $268 million a year for the next five years from voter-approved children's programs (Prop. 10 of 1998); and Proposition 1E will raid $230 million a year for the next two years from voter-approved mental health programs (Prop. 63 of 2004). Together, these programs provide little in terms of a budget solution, but the negative impact they'll have on children's and mental health programs will be devastating and have long-term consequences that will cost California taxpayers more money than the expected savings.
