The sequence of the three phrases in the ballot measure title for Proposition 1E  “Mental Health Services Funding. Temporary Reallocation. Helps Balance State Budget.” of the California Statewide Special Election May 19, 2009 is an example of how disjointed themes confuse and even trick the reader/voter.

We, California voters, had voted for Prop 63 Mental Health Services Act (MHSA).  Now, State officials want to “reallocate” funds for those services to help balance the budget?

The documents on the NAMI California website provide insight on Prop 1E.
