Re: Proposition 63 on the Nov. Ballot

FAQ: But aren't the government programs funded in Prop 63 effective?

According our brainy economic analysts, it is simply impossible that a
program begun in 1999 can have yielded enough data to allow the conclusion
that this particular model of government program is "innovative" and
"effective." The claim is made that these programs are "successful," but
the criteria and evidence for such success are nowhere to be found in the

That these (similar) programs have "demonstrated their effectiveness" in
terms of "providing services" of various kinds is not the same as
effectiveness in terms of reducing mental illness, or the manifestations of
it. This is a bit of sleight of hand on the part of the authors. Nor is
any evidence presented that state and local costs have declined as a result.
