Opinion: Brown Should Consider Merging Tax Plan
"Maybe it's time" for Gov. Jerry Brown (D) to combine his tax hike proposal with two rival tax plans to ensure the initiatives do not cancel each other out on the November ballot, columnist Thomas Elias writes in a San Gabriel Valley Tribune opinion piece. Elias notes, "Rather than Brown expecting the other sponsors to abandon their efforts and simply sign onto his, it may be more realistic for him to adjust some of his proposal to fit into a compromise version of the others."
