Majority-vote revenues?

The State Senate is expected to meet at 7pm tonight, to take up an $18 billion budget deficit reduction plan Wednesday evening.

Specifically, the proposal increases general fund revenues by $9.3 billion–but in ways that only require a majority vote, rather than a 2/3 vote for taxes. It would also enact $7.3 billion in cuts (which includes health and human services, but not Medi-Cal or Healthy Families specifically) and finds $1.5 billion in other solutions.

We’ll see what happens.
