At the ballot box; Arcata voters to decide on electricity tax and 'Corps Ain't Peeps'

October 8, 2012

Arcata residents heading to the polls next month will have a chance to vote on whether households with high electricity use should be taxed and whether they agree with the Supreme Court ruling that gives corporations the same rights as people.

Measure H, drafted by former City Councilman Dave Meserve and known as “Corps Ain't Peeps,” seeks to limit corporations' power within city limits without going against federal law and putting the city under legal scrutiny.
