I-1033 is a ballot initiative expected to qualify for the November 2009 ballot. Our analysis finds that it would:
  • Constrict the ability of state, county, and city governments to make essential public investments.
  • Exacerbate the effects of economic and fiscal downturns.
  • Increase the current deficit by half a billion dollars.

Watch the slideshow below for more details:

How did the election turn out?

If the voters refuse I-1033, is it likely that the hiring freeze will end?

I'm considering relocating so I can get a job in my field (math education). I like it here but the hiring freeze is making it hard.
