El Dorado County Board of Supervisors Vote to End Prop 90 

by Placerville Newswire / Nov 09, 2017 / comments


Prop 90 will sunset on November 8, 2018. Supervisors Hidal, Frentzen, Rinali an Veerkamp voted to end it, Supervisor Novasel was the only one who understood the need to continue for 2 more years and was the only one to vote no. 

We thank Supervisor Novasel for her efforts.  

State Propositions are 5 year Propositions for a reason...unfortunately the Board just doesn't understand all the benefits that Prop 90 offer to our County, they only see the costs.  Truly a shame...
