If you vote in the city of Los Angeles,
vote NO on SP and NO on ULA.

VOTE NO ON PROPOSITION SP

VOTE NO ON INITIATIVE
ORDINANCE ULA

VOTE NO on PROPOSITION SP because it will cost taxpayers thousands of dollars over 30 years.

Proposition SP will cost every homeowner $84.14 per 1,000 square feet of their home per year. The owner of a 1,500-sq-ft. home would pay an additional $1,893.15 in just the first 15 years.

VOTE NO ON INITIATIVE ORDINANCE ULA, another TAX INCREASE to “solve” homelessness.

L.A. voters have already raised taxes TWICE for homeless housing and services. The $1.2 billion in borrowed money for Measure HHH was supposed to build 10,000 units of housing, but so far it has failed. Our tax dollars have been wasted on bloated projects that cost roughly $600,000 per unit. Measure H raised the sales tax in L.A. County for services that would help to end homelessness. In the last five years since both measures have been in effect has homelessness in the City gotten better or worse?

VOTE NO on PROPOSITION SP because it’s a massive tax increase.

In 1996, voters passed Proposition K, a tax increase for parks that ends in 2026. Politicians want to replace the expiring tax with a new tax increase. However, Proposition SP will raise taxes $227 MILLION PER YEAR. That’s nearly 10 times as much as Proposition K, which cost $25 million per year.

VOTE NO ON INITIATIVE ORDINANCE ULA because it will be the largest tax increase in L.A. history, and consumers will pay it.

Initiative Ordinance ULA is a huge tax increase on real estate sales. It doesn’t just affect the owners of mansions. A 4% tax on the sale of properties valued above $5 million will hit housing providers, making the purchase of apartment buildings more expensive. Who pays for that? Tenants, through higher rents. It’s also a tax on the sale of supermarkets, movie theaters, shopping centers, self-storage facilities, and restaurants. Who pays for that? Consumers, through higher prices.

VOTE NO on PROPOSITION SP because it’s a back-door tax to pay for the Olympics

Last December, Councilman Joe Buscaino presented a motion to direct the city to hire a consultant to develop a ballot measure to raise $2.1 billion for Recreation and Parks improvements. The motion stated, “With the City hosting the 2028 Summer Olympics, and several of Recreation & Parks facilities serving as venues for various competitions, we must act now, to ensure all needed upgrades and repairs are completed prior to the games.” Proposition SP is a tax increase to pay for the Olympics.

VOTE NO ON INITIATIVE ORDINANCE ULA because it creates another huge bureaucracy.

Los Angeles taxpayers already pay the salaries for a huge bureaucracy that’s supposed to be solving homelessness, the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority. Many LAHSA employees collect six-figure salaries. Why should we pay for a new bureaucracy full of high-salaried paper pushers figuring out how to spend tax dollars on new contracts? No wonder some Angelenos call the current system the “Homeless Industrial Complex.”

VOTE NO on PROPOSITION SP because it’s THREE TIMES MORE THAN NEEDED

The planned $2.1 billion tax increase has turned into Proposition SP, which raises taxes by more than triple that amount. The City Council wanted to spend more, so in May, the City Administrative Officer outlined a $4.6 billion tax increase. Then in June, the Council identified “other potential projects” that required tax hikes, including the massive L.A. River overhaul. Proposition SP will cost $6.8 billion!

VOTE NO ON INITIATIVE ORDINANCE ULA because it establishes two new government boards…and more bureaucracy.

It creates a 13-member committee plus a tenant council. These board members will be unelected and unaccountable to anyone. They will also be able to hire costly outside consultants, and no members of the committee will be drawn from groups representing taxpayers’ interests.

VOTE NO ON INITIATIVE ORDINANCE ULA because it has been estimated that only half ofits revenue would go towardconstruction and rehabilitation of affordable housing.

It’s also estimated that about a quarter of the measure’s funding would go toward income assistance and subsidies. Another big chunk – $640 million over ten years – would go toward “administrative costs.”

VOTE NO ON INITIATIVE ORDINANCE ULA because there isn’t a plan to fix homelessness.

A real solution to homelessness must address all the causes and crises that lead to the unacceptable tragedy of people living and dying on the sidewalks. A real solution requires a comprehensive policy that includes adequate facilities and services for mental health care and treatment for substance use disorder, as well as services for victims of domestic violence. Housing is only one part of a comprehensive solution. ULA continues the failed status quo that can’t even keep up with increases in the homeless population.

VOTE NO ON INITIATIVE ORDINANCE ULA because it denies funding to emergency shelters.

Initiative Ordinance ULA would raise taxes by roughly $8 billion over 10 years but not one dime may be spent on building temporary housing or emergency shelters to get people safely off the streets to find the care they need. This exclusion tells the story, doesn’t it? This tax is all about helping a select few developers, not the homeless.
