Voters across the L.A. Unified School District will decide today whether to raise their own taxes. If they do, Measure EE would enact a parcel tax on some residential and commercial properties of 16 cents per square foot to help fund the school system.
Business groups, developers, realtors and anti-tax organizations have raised $1.6 million to urge a 'no' vote on the tax. All told, parcel tax backers have raised at least triple what opponents have raised. But supporters have the bigger hill to climb: Measure EE needs a two-thirds majority to pass.
