Is there fiscal accountability in Measure H?

Yes, financial accountability is required with Measure H, including:

  • Measure H continues to give Modesto local control over local funds – no funds could be taken by the State.
  • Quarterly revenue and expenditure reports as well as an annual financial audit are provided to the Measure H Oversight Board and the public.
  • The Measure H Oversight Board is comprised of nine (9) members responsible for auditing the spending of the Measure H funds and reporting back to Council on an annual basis any findings they may have.

Essential purchases like food groceries and medicine are exempt from sales tax, helping to ensure Measure H is not a burden to those on fixed or limited incomes.

At any time, Measure H can be repealed by the voters.
