Today on Your Call: How should we change California's tax system?

30and38-feat.jpg

On today's Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about tax propositions 30 and 38. They  aim to increase the personal income tax in California and use the extra revenue to fund education. If one of these doesn't pass, schools will see even more cuts. How would these propositions tackle the budget crisis and cuts to education? Join us live at 10 or send an email to feedback@yourcallradio.org. How are you going to vote on the tax initiatives? And what happens if both Prop 30 and 38 Pass in November?  It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Sharon Scott Dow, Director Of Governmental Relations with public policy change organization, Advancement Project, one of the endorsers of prop 38

Joshua Pechthalt, the president of California Federation of Teachers and one of the backers of prop 30
