Former rivals rally for passage of Jerry Brown’s tax measure
By Anthony York/Los Angeles Times
Supporters of Gov. Jerry Brown’s tax measure rallied on the Capitol steps Tuesday, vowing to attract new voters to the polls to push Proposition 30 to victory this fall. Recent polls show the initiative, which would raise the state sales tax by a quarter-cent for four years and hike levies on incomes of $250,000 or more by 1 to 3 percentage points, faces a tough road to passage.
