Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Gov. Jerry Brown has opened a campaign committee and started fundraising for his November 2012 initiative to raise taxes.

The Democratic governor filed paperwork last week listing the committee's name as "Californians to Protect Schools, Universities and Public Safety, a ballot measure committee supported by Governor Jerry Brown, teachers, business and public safety."

Steve Glazer, Brown's political adviser, has started fundraising for the effort, Glazer confirmed this afternoon.

Brown is seeking to raise $7 billion annually by increasing the state sales tax and income taxes on California's highest earners for five years.
