Voters faced 153 statewide ballot propositions on November 4, picking and choosing according to local conditions, and not giving any indication of a prevailing national mood, the Initiative and Referendum Institute reports.
With the economy souring, voters might have been expected to hold the line on government spending. But 14 of 15 bond measures appear to be heading toward passage, authorizing more than $13 billion in all. Seventeen tax measures were on ballots nationwide.
