Schwarzenegger Questions SEIU’s Support of Prop. 19
In a Los Angeles Times opinion piece, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) argues the Service Employees International Union should support pension reform rather than Proposition 19, which would legalize marijuana, to avoid cuts to social services. He writes that SEIU leaders "say they support Proposition 19 so the state can avoid cuts to health care, home care, education and elderly care programs. Yet even the best-case estimates show Proposition 19 ... bringing in only $1.4 billion in annual revenue -- a fraction of our current deficit."
