Jerry Brown Once Again Shuns Tax Reform

Only one legislator, Sen. Bob Hertzberg, a Van Nuys Democrat, is actively pursuing tax reform now. His current proposal, Senate Bill 993, would impose a 3 percent tax on services purchased by business and offset it with a sales tax rate decline. If enacted, it would only be a baby step toward reform and unto itself do virtually nothing about volatility. Even so, it has drawn a “job killer” denunciation from the California Chamber of Commerce, which said it would put California businesses “at a competitive disadvantage.”  (Dan Walters in CALmatters.org, 5/16/18)
