Um, what's the argument in favor of Prop 16 exactly? Why should it take a two-thirds majority by the voters for every time a municipality to agency to sell electricity? I understand why one wouldn't want a public agency to get involved in utilities, but what's wrong with the status quo?
And why should it be two thirds rather than a simple majority? It'd be hard to find two thirds of California voters to vote "Rape is bad" let alone some public utility measure.
Haha, that's hilarious. Excellent find.
Indeed. Great insight. It was a very confusing proposition. I mean, do I like the idea of cities getting into the utility business? No. That seems like a frightening thought, particularly when I consider the quality of the folks running cities. The idea of them running some relatively complex business strikes me as terrifying. Do I like monopolies? No. So ... ?
Yeah, same here. But what event served as the catalyst for this? I don't agree with cities getting into the utility business, but why is this a statewide issue? It's confusing.
