State Treasurer To Vote for Brown’s Compromise Tax Plan
On Thursday, California Treasurer Bill Lockyer (D) said that in November he will vote in favor of the compromise tax hike plan that Gov. Jerry Brown (D) developed with supporters of the "Millionaires Tax." He noted that the plan's failure to pass would cause spending reductions that would be damaging to the state.
