Proposition 45 With increasing health insurance costs continuing to burden consumers, Prop. 45 is designed to reduce the pace of premium increases. The measure requires insurance companies to justify rate increases prior to passing additional costs on to consumers and gives the insurance commissioner the power to approve rate increases. A similar system of checks and balances in the auto insurance market has saved consumers billions of dollars.

Proposition 47 The Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act will classify low-level nonviolent crimes, such as simple drug possession and petty theft, as misdemeanors instead of felonies. The subsequent cost savings from incarcerating many fewer people will be directed to K-12 schools, mental health treatment, and victim services.
