Legislature's Final Day http://kvpr.org/post/speaker-p-rez-previews-calif-legislatures-final-day <p>If there’s any last-minute wheeling or dealing on this final day of the California legislative session, Democratic Assembly Speaker John Pérez will surely be involved. The speaker’s top priority is a pair of bills he calls the “Middle Class Scholarship.” They would raise a billion dollars by ending a tax break for out-of-state businesses and put that money towards helping some families pay for college. Pérez spent a few minutes Thursday discussing that and more with Capitol reporter Ben Adler.</p> Fri, 31 Aug 2012 18:14:44 +0000 Ben Adler 3250 at http://kvpr.org Speaker Pérez Previews Calif.
