Opinion: Lack of Accountability, Oversight of Prop. 63 Mental Health Funding ‘Alarming’
In a Sacramento Bee opinion piece, Barry Krisberg -- distinguished senior fellow at UC-Berkeley School of Law -- argues that the "recent report by the state auditor that there is virtually no oversight or accountability for more than $7 billion of Proposition 63 Mental Health Services Act funding is alarming." He adds, "When the voters approve additional taxes to increase important public services, they are entitled to know that they are getting their money’s worth."
