Prop. 13 protects property owners from out-of-control property tax bills, but some in Sacramento want to eliminate those protections for businesses.  

Creating a split roll system that taxes commercial property differently will hurt hardworking Californians, not help. Weakening, Prop. 13 will hit small businesses with higher taxes whenever property values increase.   

Large corporations will be able to handle the higher tax bills, but split roll will force struggling mom-and-pop shops to close their doors.   

Split roll will hurt small, local businesses and put more middle class Californians out of work.  


It’s an honor to represent you.
