Today on Your Call: How should California tax out-of-state businesses?

Oct 9, 2012

On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a debate about Proposition 39, which would close tax loopholes for multistate companies and use the additional revenues for clean energy and education.  Proponents say closing the loopholes will generate $1B per year, while opponents say Prop 39 will cost jobs. Who is funding the Yes and No on Prop 39 campaigns? Join us at 10 or post your comment here. What questions do you have about Proposition 39? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
