Senate President pro Tem Darrell Steinberg says there's too much going on this year to make reforming Proposition 13 a priority. There are six measures pending that would reform the property tax legislation. Five would lower voter thresholds for various taxes or bonds from a two thirds approval to 55 percent. But Steinberg says the legislature already has a full agenda.
"So we've got the package, we've got CEQA reform, we've got immigration issues," he says. "2013 is the year to focus on producing more for the people of California."
However, Steinberg remained open to the possibility of taking on prop 13 Reform in 2014.
He has not yet taken a position on a sixth reform measure that would make it easier to reassess the property value of businesses.
