Topic - Darrell Steinberg
After decades of fighting with tight-fisted taxpayers and Republicans for more money, California's Democrats finally saw the revenue floodgates open Tuesday.
State Senate leader Darrell Steinberg, D-Sacramento, has said he's looking into possible legislation that could avert a nasty ballot fight.
"I promise that we will exercise this new power with strength, but also with humility and reason," Mr. Steinberg told the Sacramento Bee. "I certainly don't intend to suggest to my colleagues that the first thing we do with our new power is to go out and seek to raise more taxes."
