Huntington Beach, CA – On Tuesday, Orange County voters passed Measure A, an important charter amendment that requires a two thirds majority vote by the County Board of Supervisors to place any future special tax proposal on the ballot.
Michelle Steel, Chair of the Orange County Board of Supervisors, was joined by her fellow County Supervisors who unanimously passed her motion to place this charter amendment on the ballot to close this tax loophole, which further established measures to better protect Orange County taxpayers.
Yes on Measure A currently leads with 79.17% of the vote and over 375,000 votes.
“With the overwhelming support for Measure A, Orange County voters have sent a clear message that taxes are too high, and enough is enough. Measure A puts up another barrier that protects taxpayers from sacrificing more of their hard-earned money. I am proud to have fought for the measure and will continue to advocate on behalf of taxpayers. As Californians flee our tax-heavy state, I am aware there is more work to be done. I will continue to identify and close tax loopholes, make it more difficult for the government to raise our taxes, and support policies that let individuals and businesses thrive,” stated Michelle Steel.
