Voters to decide two state propositions

Tuesday, June 05, 2012

Voters will decide two ballot measures in California's Primary Election.

The first ballot measure, Proposition 28, will ask voters if they want to change California's legislative term limits. Voters approved current term limits in 1990. The measure would reduce the total number of years lawmakers can serve in the legislature from 14 to 12. The current term limits are among the strictest in the nation

Voters will also be asked to add a $1 per pack tax to cigarettes to help fun cancer research and anti-smoking campaigns. The measure is backed by cycling legend and cancer survivor Lance Armstrong. Opponents, including tobacco companies, have poured more than $46-million into their campaign compared with the $12-million supporters have raised.
