There is not only talk - but also active efforts - to make changes to Prop 13. Polls gauging voter reaction are conducted on a regular basis.
Dan Walters details the process and what it would mean to taxpayers. Although the proposed changes would affect "only" commercial and industrial properties, for now, it is widely feared that this would be the first step in eradicating Prop 13 altogether.
As he points out, the unions are pushing hard for this change. Likewise, it would be seen by many government officials and agencies, including schools, as a solution to their unfunded pension crisis.
Again the question arises: How far will they go to avoid pension reform?
