Balancing the budget on the backs of infants and the mentally ill
Santa Barbara, CA-- The Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors is taking a strong position against two upcoming initiatives on the May ballot. Supervisors are taking a stance against the propositions that, they feel will harm the most vulnerable population in our community: children and mental health patients.Proposition 1D and 1E are statewide measures that will be a part of the May 19th Special Election. But, Santa Barbara County Supervisors do not want these initiatives to be a part of the state budget balancing equation.
