Today On Your Call: How would California Governor Brown's tax initiative affect the state's budget?

On today’s Your Call, we'll have a conversation about the compromise measure that would increase the state sales tax and income taxes on California’s highest earners. Governor Brown and his allies must collect more than 800,000 signatures by mid-May to qualify for the November ballot. Who will benefit if this tax initiative passes and who will be left behind? Do you support it? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
