PPIC Releases 2013 “Californians & Their Government” Survey

February 1, 2013

The Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) has released its 2013 “Californians & Their Government” survey, which examines public opinion of state and federal government as well as policy trends. This is the 55th edition of PPIC’s “Californians & Their Government” series.

 

Some of the key findings include:

  • 71 percent of Californians placed confidence in local governments and said that shifting tax dollars from the state to local governments to run certain programs was a “good idea.”
  • 63 percent of respondents said that local government services have been “affected a lot” by recent state budget cuts.
  • 57 percent of those surveyed expect Gov. Jerry Brown and the Legislature to work together this year.
  • 57 percent of Californians favor replacing the two-thirds vote requirement with a 55 percent majority for local parcel taxes for schools.
  • 51 percent of Californians approve of the job the Governor is doing following the passage of Proposition 30 and his FY 2013-14 budget proposal.
