Proposition 1
Vote NO!

The Prop:

  • Authorizes $6.38 billion in state bonds for mental health treatment facilities ($4.4 billion) and supportive housing for homeless veterans and homeless individuals with behavioral health challenges ($2 billion)

  • Amends Mental Health Services Act to:

    • Allow funding to be used to treat substance use disorders (instead of only mental health disorders)

    • Re-allocate funding for full-service treatment programs and housing programs

    • Require annual audits of programs.

Reasons Against:

  • Prop 1 bonds will cost taxpayers an estimated $12.5 billion with interest

  • $20 billion has already been allocated to this issue, yet homelessness is still increasing.

  • Prop 1 mandates state control over local control, with reduced oversight.
