LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Gov. Jerry Brown is scheduled to be in Irvine Thursday morning, where he will push for support of his controversial new budget proposal.
The plan includes tax increases for individuals making more than $250,000 a year, as well as budget cuts, infrastructure investments, pension reform and a temporary sales tax.
Just hours after delivering his State of the State address in Sacramento, Brown traveled to Southern California, where he spoke about his plan at Los Angeles City Hall before meeting with teachers in Burbank.
Republicans say higher taxes are not the solution to California’s financial problems, but Brown says he will campaign hard for his plan.
“You can expect to see me in Los Angeles a lot more during the coming months,” he said.
