Davis Joint Unified School District parcel tax, Measure E (November 2012)
Measure E authorizes the Davis Joint Unified School District to continue to levy for four more years a parcel tax of $204.00 per parcel. The tax rate will be $20 "per dwelling unit for multi-dwelling" parcels.
Additionally, if the statewide ballot proposition, Proposition 30, had been defeated, Measure E would have allowed the Davis Joint Unified School District to levy an additional parcel tax of $242.00/year. However, Proposition 30 was approved, so that feature of Measure E is moot.
In January 2013, a lawsuit was filed against Measure E seeking to invalidate it on the grounds that it violates the provisions of Borikas v. Alameda Unified School District. The attorney for the plaintiff in the lawsuit against Measure CL is David Brillant, the Walnut Creek attorney who successfully argued Borikas.
A 2/3rds supermajority vote was required for approval.

The question on the ballot:
|MEASURE E: "To offset the continued loss of significant state funding, shall the Davis Joint Unified School District be authorized to continue a special tax for a period of 4 years not to exceed the base annual rate of $20.00 per dwelling unit for multi-dwelling parcels and $204.00 per parcel for all other parcels, and levy up to an additional $242.00 to cover State funding shortfalls ONLY if the November 2012 Temporary Taxes to Fund Education initiative does not pass?"|
