Brown’s Tax Initiative Gets Top Billing on November Ballot

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – Gov. Jerry Brown’s initiative to raise taxes has received top billing on the November ballot after a judge rejected a challenge from a competing measure. The secretary of state on Monday assigned numbers to the 11 measures on the November statewide ballot. Brown’s proposal to temporarily increase the state sales tax and income tax for incomes over $250,000 a year will appear first, as Proposition 30. A constitutional amendment aimed at changing the way state government manages its budget is second as Proposition 31. It is promoted by the bipartisan group California Forward. A judge earlier denied a request from the Our Children, Our Future campaign to block a new law that gives Brown’s initiative top billing. The competing tax measure to fund public schools is Proposition 38.
