Steinberg Critiques Schwarzenegger's Local Budget Deal
Throughout his time in the Legislature, Assemblyman Darrell Steinberg has worked tirelessly to reform the dysfunctional state-local fiscal relationship. Specifically, Steinberg has been a proponent of swapping the revenue allocation of sales and propoerty taxes between the state and local governments. The budget deal recently reached between Gov. Schwarzenegger, the League of California Cities, and the California State Association of Counties presents an opportunity for such reform, but critics say the deal falls short of the needed change. In this interview with MIR, Assemblyman Steinberg assesses the budget deal, and makes the case for real reform of the dysfunctional state-local fiscal relationship.
