Prop 16

Prop 16: Repeal Proposition 209 Affirmative Action Amendment

If passed this proposition would repeal Prop 209 (1996) which banned the use of Affirmative Action involving race or gender based preferences in CA. This proposition would not require, but allow, state government, local governments, public universities, and other political subdivisions and public entities, to develop and use affirmative action programs that grant preferences based on race, sex, color, ethnicity, and national origin in employment, education, and contracts within the limits of Federal Law.

There is no financial impact associated with passage of Prop 16.

Recommendation: Endorse - Yes on Prop 16
