California Governor Jerry Brown announces his revised budget proposal at a press conference in Los Angeles, California in this May 14, 2012 file photo. Brown, engineered a surprise victory for his tax-hike ballot proposition by tapping support at the other end of the age spectrum. Proposition 30, a temporary $6 billion tax hike, passed with a solid 54 percent approval on Tuesday, driven largely by a higher-than-expected turnout of young voters, pollsters and analysts say.
