Housemate JR asked me a while back if I'd heard about this, and I hadn't, but that might just be because I live under a baby rock.

JR says that as far as she's heard, left-wingers tend to be in favor of the proposal as supporting affordable housing.

I haven't really looked into it much, but it seems pretty innocuous. In general I'm not that fond of property tax because I think it contributes to rent hikes and gentrification, but this proposal would represent a pretty small amount of money even if it all gets passed along to tenants. On the other hand, also doesn't seem like a large amount of money for doing the good things that it's supposed to do.

Overall, I guess I'd say I don't see a lot of negative coming out of this and there's some potential for positive outcomes, so why not support it?
