Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez has been talking a lot about taxes at this morning's budget forum, suggesting most recently that an income/sales tax swap should be considered again this year.

Gov.-elect Jerry Brown has stayed mostly out of it, but the chatter appears to be irking Republicans.

Republican Assembly leader Connie Conway reminded the panel that the conversation this morning was meant by Brown to define the budget deficit, not address solutions.

"I'm so glad we're not talking about solutions and raising taxes," she said.
