[Gov. Jerry Brown talks to reporters about his campaign for a November ballot initiative that would temporarily increase sales and income taxes to stave off state budget cuts that could include three fewer weeks of school, during a visit to New Technology High School in Sacramento, Calif., Wednesday, Aug. 15, 2012. If approved by voters, Prop. 30 would raise the state sales tax by a quarter cent for four years and raise taxes on incomes over $250,.000 for seven years.
