About the Program

California has been pushing policy decisionmaking to the local level. New local authority will mean new expectations about services, with implications for local revenues. PPIC Bren Fellow Jon Sonstelie provides an overview of his report on parcel taxes as one revenue option. His presentation will be followed by a panel discussion about the future of local taxes.

This research was supported with funding from the Donald Bren Foundation.
