Proposition 2: AB1827 (Chapter 41, Statutes of 2018), Committee on Budget, No Place Like Home Act of 2018. Recommendation: SUPPORT
Known as the “No Place Like Home” proposition, this does not spend new money. We passed this via Proposition 63 in 2016. What Proposition 2 does is rectify a weakness in that vote that has put a court hold on enacting Prop. 63. Prop. 63 used “the millionaire’s tax” for mental health treatments and supports that we had passed in 2004. It did not, per the courts, adequately permit a diversion of funding from treatment to housing. Proposition 2 will give the necessary legal “clean up” of our intent in passing Proposition 63 to allow creation of housing for those with mental illnesses along with supportive services for their mental health issues.
