Four years ago voters approved Proposition 30, Governor Jerry Brown's proposal to raise sales and income taxes to fund schools. Those taxes, which have raised about $6 billion each year, are set to expire in December. Proposition 55 would extend the income tax increases for another 12 years to fund schools and health care programs for low-income families. The measure would levy a 1 percent tax on individuals making $250,000 per year, and a 3 percent tax on those making more than $500,000 per year.
