Los Angeles Activists Submit Signatures for $8 Billion Mega-Mansion Tax

A Los Angeles coalition that wants to increase the tax on the sale of mega-mansions and other high-value real estate to fund programs for the homeless says it has enough signatures to put the proposal on the ballot in November.

United to House LA, a citizen-led initiative, submitted documents Monday showing they’ve collected 98,171 signatures, well ahead of the more 61,000 needed to get on ballot, according to a statement. The signatures must still be verified by city officials.
