California Gov. Jerry Brown unveiled his revised state budget on Tuesday, which is $1 billion more than the original he submitted in January. The majority of the funds would go to health-care costs for the poor.
Governor Jerry Brown wants California to adopt the same corporate tax policy that’s worked in Texas, Massachusetts and most of the states, but Republicans have denounced the proposal as just another tax increase that will hurt businesses.
California’s State Treasurer Bill Lockyer and Assemblywoman Connie Conway offer opposing views on what Gov. Jerry Brown should do now that he’s vetoed the state budget, but both agree his decision came as a surprise.
