Brown argues for his budget plan in State of the State address

Jan 31, 2011 9:04:00 PM - latimes.com
The California governor aggressively pushes his plan for spending cuts and tax extensions, and urges legislators to let the public vote on them. GOP lawmakers appeared unmoved on the tax question.

In his first State of the State address in nearly 30 years, Gov. Jerry Brown made an aggressive public case for his budget plan, including his controversial request that legislators ask voters' blessing at the ballot for an extension of some temporary tax hikes. He said GOP efforts to block such a vote would be "unconscionable."
