PITTSBURG--The Los Medanos College debate team will take on Proposition 30, the November ballot measure that would raises taxes to fund education.

Prop. 30 calls for increasing personal state income tax on annual earnings above $250,000 for seven years and increasing sales and use tax by one-quarter cent for four years to help provide funding for K-12 schools and community colleges.

The debate will take place from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Pittsburg City Council Chamber, 65 Civic Ave. Admission and parking are free.

During the event, the award-winning debate team will argue both sides of the issue to help voters make up their minds about the ballot initiative. Light refreshments will be served following the debate.
