California budget discussions continue as anti-tax campaign begins
Capital Alert, Sac Bee, June 12, 2012The Capitol is awaiting word from Gov. Jerry Brown on the budget plan Democratic leaders say they will send him on Friday. The plan is moving quickly in the Legislature (amazing how a deadline tied to pay focuses the mind), but Brown's office says only that discussions are ongoing.
Opponents of his tax measure for the November ballot aren't waiting for a deal on the spending plan. The National Federation of Independent Business/California, the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association and the Small Business Action Committee will kick off the campaign against it today.
Their new group name? "Californians for Reforms and Jobs. Not Taxes."
They'll hold a 10 a.m. press conference at NFIB offices, 921 11th Street.
