Today, the Schools & Communities First (SCF) ballot initiative received the unanimous endorsement of the California Democratic Party and overwhelming support of grassroots activists from across the state. In response to the breaking news, SCF released the following statement:

“Schools & Communities First is proud to have received a strong endorsement from the California Democratic Party,” said SCF Spokesman Doug Herman. “Californians are uniting behind a commonsense initiative to fund our schools and local services by taxing only commercial property at fair market value. While huge corporations and wealthy investors will spread falsehoods and repeat debunked myths to protect their narrow interests, Californians know that with the fifth largest economy, we should be providing our kids the best possible education and fully funding our vital local services.” 

 In April, Politico reported on a statewide PPIC poll, saying that “SPLIT ROLL GETS THE NOD”. That poll showed that 56% of residents and 54% of likely voters approve of the initiative to direct some of the new revenue from taxing commercial property at fair market value to K-12 public schools.
