THE MAY 19TH BALLOT PROPOSITIONS At the May 19th meeting of the Lamorinda Democratic Club, Assembly Member Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley) discussed the six propositions on the May 19th ballot, and how their failure would negatively impact the state budget. Assembly Member Skinner encouraged Democrats to vote “yes,â€? on all of the propositions to prevent deep cuts to important social services until real reform can come to the budget process. California is currently the only state in the union that requires a two-thirds majority to both pass a budget and raise revenues.
