The 2nd District Court of Appeal in Los Angeles on Tuesday denied, without comment, an appeal of a lower court decision rejecting a challenge to the measure from Charles Young, the former chancellor of the UCLA campus.
Although Proposition 13 was upheld by the state Supreme Court shortly after its passage, Young contended that by requiring a two-thirds legislative vote for imposing new taxes, the measure constituited a “revision” of the state constitution that could not be enacted by voters.
But, the appellants could take their case now to the California Supreme Court. This is likely and the result will be the same.
Proposition 13 will be sustained.
