YES on Prop 1A High Speed Rail YES!
Prop 1A would provide $9.95 billion dollars to catalyze the development of the 800 mile High-Speed Rail (HSR) system, and to make improvements to existing rail networks.
YES on Prop 2 - Humane treatment of farm animals -- YES
Prop 2 would reduce the density of farm animals, and therefore the intensity of the air and water pollution.
NO on Prop 4 Parental Notification -- NO
Would require women under 18 to wait 48 hours before obtaining an abortion, and would require notification of parents or grandparents or permission from the court before proceeding.
NO on Prop 7 Renewable Energy NO
Contains serious, inherent flaws that could get in the way of achieving its goal of 50% renewable fuels by 2025. Actually works against Sierra Club-backed energy policies that would allow communities to choose the source of their energy. Decreases environmental review of proposed power plants. Harms Community Choice Aggregation.
NO on Prop 10 Renewable Fuels -- NO
Would put California on the wrong road to cleaner vehicles by setting up faulty programs.
Yes on B - Affordable Housing Fund
Board of Supervisors
San Francisco Superior Court
BART Board of Directors
Tom Radulovich (District 9)
