California Moving Towards Wisconsin-Like Reforms

Seventy-seven of those polled say they favor requiring government workers to pay more for their own health care


California's Proposition 30 and Proposition 32 are too close to call, according to a new Reason-Rupe statewide poll of likely voters that finds 7 percent have already cast their ballots. Reason-Rupe finds 50 percent of likely voters intend to vote "yes" and 46 percent say they'll vote "no" on Proposition 30, Gov. Jerry Brown's initiative to raise sales and income taxes. 

As Prop. 30's support slips, there are emerging signs that even California's Democratic-leaning electorate has grown weary of the state's tax increases and may be ready for some Wisconsin-like reforms.
