**FILE** Graduate student Pedro Ramirez is photographed Oct. 19, 2012, in front of a Proposition 30 sign on the campus of California State University, Long Beach in Long Beach, Calif. Proposition 30, which includes a temporary quarter-cent increase in the statewide sales tax and higher income taxes on those who make more than $250,000 a year, faces a well-funded opposition campaign that claims the $6 billion the higher taxes would generate each year would not help schools. "We tell them if you don't vote you're literally going to be voting for a tuition increase," said Ramirez, a graduate student at Cal State-Long Beach who is working to rally student support for the ballot measure.
