The latest on California politics and government

Revenue measures fared well in local elections held across the state Tuesday, with tax proposals passing at a higher rate than over the previous decade.

An analysis by the League of California Cities' CaliforniaCityFinance.com counted 53 revenue-related measures, including tax increases and school bonds, among the 90 ballot proposals considered by local voters.

Voters on Tuesday approved 82 percent of the 22 non-school tax-related measures, compared to a 65 percent passage rate from 2001 to 2010, according to the analysis of preliminary election results.

Roughly 70 percent of the 16 special tax proposals, which required the support of two-thirds of voters, were approved Tuesday. The passage rate for such measures for the previous 10 years was 46 percent.
