    Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Ass'n Gives Ballot Recommendations, Advises "No" on L.A. County Sales Tax Hike (Measure A)

    (October 9, 2004) -- The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association (HJTA) has posted its ballot recommendations online. They include a "no" vote on L.A. County Measure A, which would make L.A. County's sales tax the highest in the state by raising it half a cent for what supporters say will be law enforcement and anti-terrorism purposes.

    "Supporters claim it is needed for public safety, but the problem can be solved with existing revenue," says HJTA.

    Measure A was placed on the ballot on a 4-1 vote (Antonovich dissenting) by the L.A. County Board of Supervisors. It is backed by LB City Hall.

    HJTA, founded by the late Howard Jarvis, architect of the property tax limiting Proposition 13, says it "takes positions on issues of direct concern to taxpayers. HJTA will also take positions on ballot measures that will impact the economy. This is because, as taxpayers know from painful experience, when the economy turns sour and tax revenues go down, governments' usual reaction is to reach for the taxpayer's wallet."
