California voters will decide in November whether taxes should be raised on individuals who earn more than $250,000 per year to boost funds for schools and social programs and retire the state deficit.
Rick Jacobs, founder and chairman of the California-based Courage Campaign, one of the groups that led the effort to bring the tax initiative to the ballot, will discuss the issue at a National Press Club Newsmaker Tuesday, June 12, at 10 a.m. in the club's Zenger Room.
Will California’s vote serve as a model for those in state and federal government who want to increase revenue? Will the measure influence the debate over eliminating the Bush-era tax cuts on high-wage earners? Jacobs will answer those and other questions at the Newsmaker.
