Upcoming tax battle could be a nasty feud

From Sac Bee:

Let’s get ready to rumble.

In this corner is California Gov. Jerry Brown.

In that corner is Molly Munger, a very wealthy civil rights attorney.

Brown and his union allies want voters to raise their own sales taxes, plus income taxes on the most affluent, to narrow a chronic budget gap.

Munger and the state PTA want to raise income taxes on all but the lowest-income Californians to provide more money to schools.
