Scope Action Fund is proud to be part of the team that helped push for proposition 55. Remember when teachers were being laid off, after school programs were closing and college fees were on the rise? That was just 5 years ago. Thanks to California voters, income taxes on the rich were raised to fund schools and critical services in 2012. Up to $8 billion annually now supports our schools, and this was the first step in stopping decades of painful budget cuts in California.
