Jerry Brown unveiled a budget on Monday that included "painful" cuts to
state worker pay and social services and a plan to extend tax increases
as the most populous U.S. state struggles to close a $25.4 billion
deficit. . . .
Brown said he would ask lawmakers to support a
ballot measure to extend temporary tax increases that expire this year.
He plans to campaign vigorously for the measure and is hopeful voters
will endorse it in light of even deeper spending cuts if they reject it. . . .
