Default Any interesting state propositions/questions on your ballot?

I live in Massachusetts and we have 3, as far as I know. I feel strongly about all three, but I haven't heard much discussion of them. Maybe the local papers are covering them--I don't read them.

Question One (State Personal Income Tax):

Quote:
This proposed law would reduce the state personal income tax rate to 2.65% for all categories of taxable income for the tax year beginning on or after January 1, 2009, and would eliminate the tax for all tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2010....
Question Two (Possession of Marijuana):

Quote:
This proposed law would replace the criminal penalties for possession of one ounce or less of marijuana with a new system of civil penalties, to be enforced by issuing citations, and would exclude information regarding this civil offense from the state's criminal record information system. Offenders age 18 or older would be subject to forfeiture of the marijuana plus a civil penalty of $100. Offenders under the age of 18 would be subject to the same forfeiture and, if they complete a drug awareness program within one year of the offense, the same $100 penalty....
Question Three (Dog Racing):

Quote:
This proposed law would prohibit any dog racing or racing meeting in Massachusetts where any form of betting or wagering on the speed or ability of dogs occurs....
And if anyone from MA is out there, I'd love to hear your thoughts!
