There is a statewide primary election on June 5, 2018. In addition to voting for various statewide elected offices, there are five (5) Propositions on the ballot. CBPA is supporting the following four measures and taking no position on Proposition 71 because it just sets the date ballot measures would take effect after approved by the voters. The California Chamber of Commerce is supporting all five of the Propositions.
