A new poll finds the majority of Californians support extending higher state income taxes for earnings over $250,000 a year.
The Public Policy Institute of California finds 55 percent of adults favor extending the tax increases, which were originally passed in 2012 as Proposition 30. They’re set to expire in 2018.
Among likely voters support falls to 49 percent, with 46 percent opposing. That’s within the margin of error, before any real campaigning for and against.
Labor groups have filed initiative proposals for next year’s ballot. One would extend the taxes to 2030. Another would make them permanent. Only 17 percent of adults favor that.
