Q: What is the No. 1 priority of California state government?
FOX: The No. 1 priority of the California state government is to build and stimulate our economy without taxing the middle class.
We can stimulate our local economy by connecting our corporate tax incentives to how much of a corporation's profits are reinvested in our state in the form of new development and good jobs. By keeping the money local, we stimulate our local economies.
We can give millionaires a higher tax and we can tax minerals which come out of California's ground.
We have infrastructure and talent available to bring more military contracts to our district and create additional jobs. We need to market and use these assets immediately.
Part of economic priority is to ensure proper funding for our top priorities: A full and complete education for our children, which includes reduced secondary class sizes and more classes at the college level. By focusing on excellence in education, we are investing in our future economic success.
Finally, we need to ensure access to preventative medical care for our families now to reduce the impact of higher medical expenses in the near and more distant future.
Q: Do you support/oppose Propositions 30 and 38? Please explain your support or opposition for both measures.
