Real budget reform needed to move California forward

Tom Berryhill - Guest Opinion

 

When the budget proposal was presented, it was clear that there was plenty of pain to go around. The proposal relied more on taxes than on cuts; however, the Governor seemed open to discussion. It would have been irresponsible of me to have ignored the opportunity to work with this new Governor and explore just what opportunities were available to us to reform and restore California. 


While I believe the voters have a right to choose, we in Sacramento must work our hardest to assure there are actually choices on the ballot. Simply placing a tax extension on the ballot is not the solution to getting us out of this mess. We must have reforms, otherwise they will be back again with their hand out for more when those tax extensions expire.
