KESQ Voter Guide: Prop 16

  • Repeal Proposition 2019 - Affirmative Action Amendment
  • Permits government decision-making policies to consider race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in order to address diversity by repealing constitutional provision prohibiting such policies.
  • What does a Yes vote mean?
    • State and local entities could consider race, sex, color, ethnicity, and national origin in public education, public employment, and public contracting to the extent allowed under federal and state law.
  • What does a No vote mean?
    • The current ban on the consideration of race, sex, color, ethnicity, and national origin in public education, public employment, and public contracting would remain in effect.
  • Fiscal Impact
    • No direct fiscal effect on state and local entities. The effects of the measure depend on the future choices of state and local government entities and are highly uncertain.
