SAN FRANCISCO - Gov. Jerry Brown said tonight that he will announce his tax proposal publicly on Friday, though he again declined to discuss what it includes.
"We're going to unveil a very complete press release tomorrow," the Democratic governor said after an event in San Francisco.
Brown is expected to propose a November 2012 ballot initiative to raise nearly $7 billion by raising taxes on the wealthiest Californians and on sales, but he stayed quiet about the proposal today, even as details of the plan leaked.
Brown was speaking at a California State Association of Counties banquet. The event was closed to the media.
As he left, he said, "I have to go home and work on the press release."
