Bay Planning Coalition (BPC) opposes Proposition 53, a measure on California’s ballot this November.

With 17 ballot measures already qualified for California’s November ballot, voters will have to do their homework this fall to separate the worthy initiatives from those being driven by special interests that aren’t what they seem.
Proposition 53 is a deceptive measure that will do more harm than good. It is opposed by a broad, bipartisan coalition of organizations, including the Bay Planning Coalition, California Professional Firefighters, California Chamber of Commerce, California Hospital Association, firefighters, paramedics, family farmers, environmentalists, nurses, law enforcement and local governments.
