RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown has taken his budget message on the road.
On Friday, he stopped at an elementary school in Riverside to make his pitch that voters should decide whether to support a renewal of recent tax hikes. He says balancing taxes with spending cuts is the best way to close California’s remaining $15.4 billion deficit.
The Democratic governor says the state is too divided and the stakes too high to let lawmakers decide what to do without consulting voters.
Brown targeted a Republican district on Friday and plans more appearances throughout California in the hopes of winning some GOP votes, which are needed to call a special election.
Brown says there is no right answer, but residents need to decide what they want from the state.
