Hawaii Supreme Court Strikes Down Ballot Measure

Hawaii Supreme Court Strikes Down Ballot Measure:  The Hawaii Supreme Court has struck down the question that was to have appeared on the General Election ballot, “Shall the legislature be authorized to establish, as provided by law, a surcharge on investment real property to be used to support public education?”   The surcharge (aka property tax) would have been used to fund education; however, the Supreme Court said the measure wasn’t adequately clear to let voters know what they would be voting on.  Thus, voters will not be voting on this question.
