Please oppose SB 2 & SB 50

Please oppose SB 2 & SB 50. Both would require County Recorder-Clerks to collect taxes on behalf of the State of California. Please read my letter to the editor. Let’s send a message to the State Legislature that they can not tax us off our own property.

July 24th, 2017

Dear Editor:

I would like to encourage all residents of El Dorado County to oppose two bills moving through the State Legislature, SB 2 & SB 50. Both bills relate to the recording of property deeds and other public documents. Both bills would require more money from local taxpayers, only to be wasted by the bloated and inefficient state government.

SB 2 would impose a $75 fee on every recorded real estate document. The El Dorado County Recorder-Clerk’s Office would be required to collect this fee, only to turn it over to the State of California, to be used for subsidized and low-income housing in other portions of the state.

In my opinion, hard working property owners already pay enough in taxes, and they do not need to pay more money to a state government, that has proven time and again, that they cannot manage the financial resources that we entrust to them.

SB 50 is the second bill that needs to be closely watched. SB 50 would give the state government the ability to determine who purchases federal land. In order to accomplish this, they would require local recorder-clerks to set-up local programs to determine if purchasers of federal land meet state-mandated criteria. Not only is this an undue burden on local jurisdictions, but it also is unconstitutional. The state government has no lawful ability to determine who can purchase federal lands.

In June 2018, I am hoping to be elected El Dorado County’s next Recorder-Clerk. I think it is important that the next Recorder-Clerk keep a close eye on state legislation that could negatively affect our freedoms and our American way of life. All El Dorado County taxpayers need to remind our State Legislators that they cannot tax us off our own property. I am prepared to fight for El Dorado County taxpayers/property owners.

Sincerely,

Todd White
