Huff Video: Governor Budget Plan Flawed

A budget plan that relies on voters' approval of $50 billion in new taxes is not the "smartest of moves," Huff says

Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar) discussed Governor Jerry Brown's May budget revision released earlier this week.

The Governor's plan contains $8.3 billion in proposed cuts and a $50 billion tax hike over seven years, according to a Huff office news release. It also represents a $30 billion increase in state spending since 2007-08, the release said.

The revise attempts to close a budget gap of $15.7 billion but Huff officials said the independent Legislative Analysts' Office reports the deficit numbers are probably "north of $17 billion" and could grow even higher.

"Senator Huff believes that basing a budget plan on a bet that voters will approve $50 billion in new taxes this November isn't the smartest of moves," according to the news release.
