Jon Coupal of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association: California's Fiscal Policy and Budget Crisis

January 21, 2009

Like many states this year, California is going through a fiscal crisis, measured by some as a $40 billion deficit with current spending proposals. In this edition of the Tax Foundation's Tax Policy Podcast, Tax Counsel and Director of State Projects Joseph Henchman interviews Jon Coupal, President of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association. They discuss HJTA’s recent lawsuit over the rushed majority-vote “passage” of the California budget, why the 2/3 rule is important, and prospects for sound tax policy in California.
