Save the Renters Rebate -- Sign the Petition today!
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has used his line item veto to eliminate all $191 million of funding for the Senior Citizens Property Tax Assistance Program from the California state budget. This was the governor’s single biggest line-item veto. The Governor did not seek any public input before making this drastic and unexpected cut.
The line-item veto takes $150 million from low-income renters and $41 million from low-income homeowners. The program assisted 467,000 renter households last year, with each receiving an average payment of $316 per household. For more information about the renters' rebate, visit our renters' rebate page.
Please sign the petition below to help send a loud and clear message that Californians demand funding for this crucial program for low-income senior, blind and disabled Californians.
