Gov. Jerry Brown looks through a box of petitions for his tax-hike initiative before submitting them to the Sacramento County Registrar of Voters in Sacramento, Calif., Thursday, May 10, 2012. Brown's initiative is one of two tax hike petitions that are expected to qualify for November ballot. Brown has warned that if voters do not pass the tax hikes there would be even deeper cuts to schools, higher education and social services. (AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli)
