Resources:Sacramento City Council OKs youth funding measure for November ballot

The Sacramento City Council on Tuesday voted 8-1 to put another youth funding measure on the November ballot. Voters rejected similar proposals in 2016 and 2020, but advocates say the need for consistent funding for youth programs has increased over the years. 
 
If voters pass the ballot measure, the city would use the “equivalent” of 40% of the cannabis business tax revenue annually from the general fund for youth programs. That would amount to about $10 million a year for services such as mental health counseling and after school activities, according to a staff report.
