Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry Seeks to Boost Local Investment in Infrastructure and Affordable Housing
Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry and some of her colleagues held a press conference and rally in support of her bill, ACA 1. ACA 1 would reduce the local vote threshold for approval of bond and special tax measures, from a two-thirds vote to a 55 percent supermajority.
