Three of the upcoming state propositions will get a thorough review by students, alumni and faculty from Sacramento State’s Public Policy and Administration (PPA) program from noon to 2 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 1, in the University Union, California Suite.

PPA props forum

The panel will take a look at California’s initiative system in general, then consider three propositions with special relevance to the state’s higher education system.

 

  • Prop. 30 – Temporary Taxes to Fund Education. Guaranteed Local Public Safety Funding.
  • Prop. 32 – Political contributions by Payroll Deduction. Contributions to Candidates.
  • Prop. 38 – Tax to Fund Education and Early Childhood Programs.

 

The forum is sponsored by the Graduate Association of Students in Public Policy and Administration. “In the PPA program, we spend a lot of time discussing the California initiative system and the impacts it has on the state’s budget and governance,” says Kathryn Cardenas, PPA student and ASI graduate director. “This event is an opportunity for us to share what we know with the students of Sac State.”

There will be free pizza for the first 70 students, courtesy of Sacramento State’s Public Affairs office.
