THURSDAY BUDGET EVENTS POSTPONED
The Thursday, July 18th press conference in the Capitol in Sacramento–to unveil over 50 higher-income signatories in support of upper tax bracket restoratio–is POSTPONED, and to be rescheduled at an appropriate time. Assemblywoman Helen Thomson, the anticipated host of the event, is unavailable; her husband had a heart attack earlier this week. We send our best wishes for his full recovery.
The Thursday, July 18th press conference in San Diego–to spotlight the Assembly Republicans there who have not voted for the budget–is also POSTPONED. That will likely be rescheduled next week.
