The latest on California politics and government

DAN WALTERS DAILY: Dan talks about a recent court decision concerning California's education system and the state's new "parent-trigger" law.

Gov. Jerry Brown takes his campaign for Proposition 30 to Sacramento City College today, joining Senate leader Darrell Steinberg and others to urge students and faculty to support the tax initiative.

Other listed speakers at the rally include Taylor Valmores, president of the college's student senate; Brice Harris, the incoming California Community Colleges chancellor; Sacramento City College President Kathryn Jeffery; and Jeff Freitas, the secretary-treasurer of the California Federation of Teachers. The event starts at noon in the Arts Court Theatre courtyard, 3835 Freeport Blvd.

Brown is also scheduled to attend a Yes on 30 fundraiser later today at the Walnut Grove home of former Assemblyman Rusty Areias, now of California Strategies, and his wife, Julie. Tickets to the 5 p.m. reception run from $1,000 to $25,000.

Speaking of Proposition 30, the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association says it's filing a lawsuit in Monterey Superior Court against California State University, Monterey Bay, claiming that university personnel used taxpayer-funded resources to urge students to vote for the tax initiative. The Bee's Laurel Rosenhall took a look in this story earlier this week at how the Prop. 30 campaign is playing out at campuses across the state.

FUNDRAISERS: Other Sacramento-area fundraisers today include an Oktoberfest reception tonight at the Sierra 2 Center for Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones' reelection bid in 2014, coffee at Chicory on 11th Street for Assemblyman Jim Nielsen's run in the 4th Senate District's special primary, a Wicked'wich food truck lunch at Cesar Chavez Park to benefit Assemblyman Richard Pan's reelection campaign this year, and a reception this evening for Rep. Tom McClintock's reelection bid at the Lincoln home of Ken and Sandy Campbell.
