Common ground on Initiatives is good news for CA, schools

It is good news that the governor, legislative leaders and the Restoring California Coalition have found common ground on a funding initiative for the November 2012 ballot.

The new plan uses the structure of the governor’s initiative to ensure additional revenues will flow through the state general fund to close the state’s budget deficit and to restore cuts to schools, colleges and other essential public services. It also promotes tax fairness by increasing income taxes on the wealthiest Californians.

Hopefully, this new agreement will bring more people together supporting a responsible plan to put California back on the road to recovery.
