A new poll finds California voters split over a measure that would change how commercial and industrial properties are taxed. According to a recent Public Policy Institute of California survey, 45% of likely voters support Prop 15, 45% are opposed and 6% are undecided. With the measure, industrial and commercial properties would be reassessed every three years. Supporters argue that Prop 15 would help fund cash-strapped schools and local governments, while opponents call it a tax increase that would hurt businesses.
