Eleven statewide measures are on the Nov. 6 ballot, including one that would repeal the 2017 fuel tax and vehicle fee increases and make future gas tax increases subject to voter approval. Four of the propositions address housing issues, including one that would overturn a law limiting the use of rent control in California. The number of ballot measures is below average for an even-numbered election year, and the state Supreme Court decided on July 18 to remove the most potentially far-reaching one, Proposition 9, an initiative to split California into three states. But advocates raised more than $100 million as of July 31 to campaign for and against the propositions.
