Today on Your Call: How will Jerry Brown’s budget plan affect California over the next year?

On today's Your Call, we’ll air a live broadcast of Governor Jerry Brown’s State of the State address and then open the lines for questions and responses.  The state now faces a 9.2 billion dollar deficit.  Brown is hoping to raise more revenue through tax increases.  But that will have to be approved by voters in November.  In the meantime, where will budget cuts hit the hardest?  Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org.  What do you hope for California in 2012?  It’s Your Call with Holly Kernan, and you.
