SACRAMENTO, Calif. - A California judge has ordered changes to an election information guide for arguments opposing a property tax ballot initiative.

Proposition 15 will ask voters to raise taxes on business properties with a value of $3 million or more.

Prior to the election, the Secretary of State's office will mail a voter information guide to registered voters that gives arguments for and against statewide ballot initiatives.

Wednesday, a judge ordered language removed from the guide that said the initiative would let the Legislature raise property taxes on homeowners.

Superior court Judge James P. Arguelles said home-based businesses are exempt from the measure.
