State Voters Mull Budget-Related Ballot Measures
Voters are mixed on two ballot measures in Tuesday's special election that would redirect funding allocated for mental health and child development programs to address the state's budget deficit. Supporters say the measures are necessary to fix the state's budget, while opponents argue that the ballot measures would hurt programs that ultimately save the state money.
- "Mental Health, Preschool Programs Would Lose Funding" (Johnson/Torres, Stockton Record, 5/15).
- "Children, Mental Health Advocates Criticize Propositions" (Nazario, "News," KPCC, 5/13).
