Statement from Senate President pro Tempore Kevin de León on Senate Bill 8 (Hertzberg)

January 12, 2015

I applaud Senator Hertzberg for initiating a much-needed discussion on the future of tax policy in California.  We need to modernize the state General Fund tax base to better reflect the information and service based-economy of the 21st century, and ensure that state and local governments have sufficient resources to make investments in human capital and physical infrastructure needed for California to grow and prosper.
