First 5 Officials Mull Effects of Approval of Proposition 1D
First 5 officials in San Joaquin County are developing contingency plans that include significant spending cuts should voters approve Proposition 1D in the May 19 special election. The measure would redistribute tobacco-tax funding allocated for First 5 to the state's general fund. Meanwhile, the Sacramento Hispanic Chamber of Commerce announced its support for all six ballot measures.
- "Proposition in May Election Would Move Money Away From Program" (Torres, Stockton Record, 4/3).
- "Hispanic Chamber Backs Proposition 1A-1F" (Johnson, Sacramento Business Journal, 4/2).
