Editorial Says Democrats Must Promote Tax Hike Plan
AÂ Sacramento Bee editorial argues,Â "Now that the state budget is done, Gov. Jerry Brown (D) and other Democratic leaders must confront the hard task of persuading a rightly skeptical electorate to approve" a compromise tax hike initiative. The editorial states, "Brown and his allies will need to make certain that voters have a clear understanding of what lies ahead if they reject the $8.5 billion tax hike." It concludes, "Nothing on California's long November ballot will be more consequential for this state than the governor's tax measure."
