HJTA Files Reply In Support Of Petition In Budget Case

The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association has filed its reply (here) in support of the Petition for Review it filed in the Prop. 13 budget case. To recapitulate, the underlying issue is whether the Legislature violated the two-thirds vote requirement for new taxes imposed by Prop. 13 when it passed a budget in December by a majority vote. That budget never became effective because it was vetoed by the Governor. (Full disclosure: I represent the Legislature in this case.) The Court of Appeal's ruling in the case is referenced here.
