Prop C, the 2018 initiative that taxes wealthy San Francisco businesses to pay for homeless service, became law Wednesday after the California Supreme Court refused to hear a challenge to it.
Prop C, which implements a .5% tax on businesses making over $50 million a year, passed in 2018 with more than 61 percent of the vote.
But the law’s been held up in the courts by lawsuits filed by the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, the anti-tax lobbyists. The group claimed that the tax needed two-thirds of the vote to pass, but the state court of appeals rejected this argument back in June.
