Prop 29, the California Cancer Research Act, will save hundreds of thousands of lives, fund cutting-edge cancer research and keep kids across the state from smoking. The more people who learn those facts, the more people will vote to turn this game-changing proposal into law. There have been many lies spread by Big Tobacco about Prop 29, so here are some good facts to add to your tweets and Facebook posts:
- I’ve been told that Prop 29 revenue will be spent in other states. Can it?
Answer: No. Prop 29 clearly states that revenue is to be used in California.
- I’ve been told that Prop 29 will increase everyone’s taxes. Is this true?
Answer: NO. It’s paid for only by those who choose to smoke.
- I’ve been told that Prop 29 takes money away from California’s public schools. What’s the truth?
Answer: NO. Prop 29 does not reduce school funding one nickel! The California Superintendent of Schools, The California State PTA and School Boards statewide support Prop 29.
On Tuesday, let’s send a clear message based on facts that California stands with cancer survivors, not tobacco companies! Vote YES on Prop 29!
