On Thursday, Feb. 28, former State Sen. Sheila Kuehl will lead the Santa Monica College Public Policy Institute in a panel and audience discussion regarding Prop. 13 ‚Äî a 1978 bill that limited property taxes on homes, businesses and farms and established a two-thirds vote requirement for raising taxes ‚Äî from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the college‚Äôs Bundy Campus.
Kuehl, along with a panel of experts, will discuss the ongoing mission to engage the community in analyzing issues in regards to public policy.
