Proposition 1 – Housing Assistance Bonds Vets, affordable housing

Proposition 2 – Mental Illness Housing Bonds Concerns the homeless

Authorizes the state to use up to $140 million per year in existing county mental-health funds to pay for housing for homeless people with mental illnesses. The goal is to get Californians suffering from mental illness off the street and into facilities that bring better access to services.

The bulk of the revenue would go toward conservancies and state parks to restore and protect watershed lands and nonprofits and local agencies for river parkways. Money would also go toward improvements to meet safe drinking water standards.

Seventy-two percent would go to eight nonprofit hospitals; 18 percent would be allocated for five University of California general acute hospitals; and 10 percent would go to hospitals that provide pediatric services to children eligible for California Children’s Services, the state program for kids with certain diseases or health problems.

Proposition 5 – Property Tax Base Transfers All seniors, disabled

 Allows homebuyers who are 55 or older or severely disabled to transfer their tax assessments from their prior home to their new home – no matter the new home’s market value or its location in the state or the buyer’s number of moves. It removes certain existing requirements and makes them eligible for property tax savings when they move to a different home.

Proposition 6 – Repeal State Gas Tax Affects road repair fund

Repeals a 12-cent gas tax hike and increases in vehicle registration fees approved by lawmakers last year. The effect would be reduced funding for highway and road maintenance and repairs, as well as transit programs. The proposition would also require the Legislature to get a majority of voters to approve new or increased state fuel and vehicle taxes.
    
22,925 of 24,312 precincts – 94 percent
    
Yes,  3,034,568 – 45 percent
    
x-No,  3,759,623 – 55 percent


    
    
Proposition 7 – Allow Daylight Saving Change If complies with fed law

Would pave the way for year-round daylight saving time in the state. The issue would still need a two-thirds vote from the Legislature and a change in federal law.

x-Yes,  3,974,358 – 60 percent
    
No,  2,663,486 – 40 percent


    
    
Proposition 8 – Regulate Dialysis Charges For clinic treatments

Would cap dialysis center revenues. Money collected above the cap would have to be paid back in rebates. Clinic operators who exceed the cap would also have to pay a fine to the state.
    
22,925 of 24,312 precincts – 94 percent
    
Yes,  2,582,669 – 38 percent
    
x-No,  4,137,172 – 62 percent
    
    
Proposition 10 – Remove Rent Control Limits On local government

Would let cities and counties regulate rental fees in buildings that state law currently shields from such control. The measure would repeal the Costa Hawkins Rental Housing Act, a law that banned rent control on single-family homes and all housing built after Feb. 1, 1995. Costa-Hawkins also prohibits cities and counties from telling landlords what they can charge new renters.
