California Gov. Jerry Brown says win or lose his ballot initiative in November to raise income taxes on the state’s wealthiest and sales taxes on everyone will be last time he tries convince voters to accept a tax increase.
During a recent meeting with the San Francisco Chronicle
’s editorial board, Brown explained that whatever the outcome of Proposition 30, “We're not going to go out to the people again. Because we've tried it.”
However, Brown maintained the ballot bid is “the only viable step forward" in dealing with the state's budget issues.
"There's not another alternative," he told the Chronicle editorial board.
According to polls, support for the tax increase initiative stands at about 53 percent.
