It would end a tax break in California law, which allows out-of-state corporations to pay less in taxes than businesses based in California.</p><p>The bill required Republican support in order to pass, but Assembly member Brian Jones made it clear that would not come from him.</p> Tue, 14 Aug 2012 01:13:28 +0000 Amy Quinton 2212 at http://kvpr.org
