Ballot Proposition Discussion

On June 8 the 2010 State of California ballot will include five propositions. Hub Berkeley would like to set aside time on Tuesday June 1st from 6:30pm-8:00pm for a discussion of these propositions. Bring materials, guests, snacks, and anything else that might help all of us to better understand the issues involved in these propositions.
The five propositions are as follows:
Proposition 13: Limits on property tax assessment, seismic retrofitting of existing buildings. Legislative constitutional amendment.
Proposition 14: Elections. Increases right to participate in primary elections.
Proposition 15: California Fair Elections Act
Proposition 16: Imposes new two-thirds voter approval requirement for local public electricity providers. Initiative constitutional amendment.
Proposition 17: Allows auto insurance companies to base their prices in part on a driver’s history of insurance coverage. Initiative statute.
