The election is on Nov. 6 and Action News Now is providing a breakdown for Propositions so that you can be prepared to vote in the 2018 Midterm Elections.

Prop 2 - What is it about?

Proposition 2 is one of the four bond measures on the November ballot but is the only one that actually has a plan to repay the bond over time. 

In 2004, California passed the Mental Health Services Tax, also known as the "millionaire tax," which was money meant to be spent on services for the mentally ill. Now, California is facing criticism on how that money was spent, with a lawsuit filed over building homes to house mentally ill homeless in the state. 

The lawsuit contends that the money from the millionaire tax should only go toward treatment and services, not toward new housing. 

Instead of fighting the battle in courts, lawmakers asked voters to approve $2 billion dollars in bonds to build the housing and then would be paid back using the existing money from the millionaire's tax. 

What does my vote mean?

YES: The state gets to sell $2 billion in bonds for housing for the mentally ill homeless and will be paid back with money from the tax already in place

NO: The state does not get to sell those bonds and existing legislation would be dealt with in court
