This forum will focus on the four proposed State Constitutional amendments (Early Voting; Teacher Evaluation; Governor’s Budget; Admitting Prior Criminal Acts in Court); and Columbia Prop 1 (Property Tax for Safety) and Prop 2 (Increase Developer’s Fees). The League is arranging for pro and con speakers on all issues; if speakers are not available, the League will provide pro and con information.
