Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Nearly two-thirds of the 87 local government and school tax and bond measures on Tuesday's ballot passed, according to a compilation by the League of California Cities.

Tax and bond measures requiring less than two-thirds vote margins did particularly well, including 10 of 11 city tax measures. But just two of eight city taxes requiring two-thirds approval made it, according to data compiled by Michael Coleman, a financial adviser to the city government lobbying organization.

Overall, 55 of the 87 revenue and bond measures passed, a 63 percent pass rate. They included 22 of 34 local school bond issues, which require 55 percent voter approval.
