Gov. Jerry Brown is pushing hard for voters to help balance California's budget by passing a November ballot measure raising taxes.
Fifty-four percent of voters surveyed in a recent Field Poll supported the proposal to raise taxes on sales and high-income earners, while 38 percent opposed it.
Voters were evenly split on two other tax proposals. The first, backed by attorney Molly Munger, would temporarily raise income taxes on nearly all Californians and put most of the money towards schools. Another, supported by hedge fund manager Tom Steyer, would raise taxes on out-of-state businesses, with the money split between energy conservation and the state's general fund.
We're curious what Half Moon Bay Patch readers think about these options. Which tax measure do you support? Or do you oppose them all? Vote in our poll, and tell us your reasons in the comments.
