Opinion: Brown Stressing Urgency of Budget Situation
During a recent legislative hearing, Gov. Jerry Brown (D) warned that if his plan to put tax extensions on a June ballot fails, he "will answer with an all-cuts budget that will erase the deficit," Sacramento Bee columnist Dan Morain writes. Morain adds, "Some Capitol denizens dismissed Brown's appearance as a stunt. Some saw it as a sign of desperation. They were right. But given the situation, there's nothing wrong with feeling a little bit desperate about the state of California."
