Statewide Ballot Measure

Proposition 55 – Extends Prop. 30’s tax on the wealthy


This measure temporarily extends Prop. 30’s personal income tax increases on individual earnings over $250,000 per year to fund K-12 schools, community colleges, and healthcare programs. This revenue will free up other state monies to fund the CSU and social service programs. If Prop. 55 is not approved, it will likely result in shortfalls of up to $8 billion annually, which could have negative impacts on campus programs and staffing levels.

CSUEU has taken no position on other statewide propositions.
CSUEU’s recommendations on propositions are based on the best interests of higher education and our members.

You can review all the measures at the Secretary of State website.
