LOS ANGELES (AP) - California's governor is warning of painful cuts in Sacramento unless voters approve his $6 billion-a-year tax increase.
Gov. Jerry Brown was pleading his case in Los Angeles on Wednesday, with time running out and his odds growing longer.
Recent polling has found Proposition 30 in danger of failing in Tuesday's election.
Brown's signature proposal would boost the sales tax a quarter cent for four years, while raising income taxes for seven years on residents earning more than $250,000 annually.
The Democratic governor has a tough sell. He's asking voters to raise their own taxes and send the money to widely unpopular Sacramento, at a time of double-digit unemployment.
Brown says the state needs to invest in its future - especially schools.
