Gov. Jerry Brown’s committee for the 2012 tax measure Proposition 30 has agreed to pay $1,500 in fines to the state’s campaign watchdog commission for not properly reporting all contributions.
The committee, which was controlled by Brown, failed to properly report receiving $5,000 or more within 10 days on two occasions. The missing reports should have reported $1,531,427 received from Californians Working Together to Restore and Protect Public Schools, Universities and Public Safety, and $15,000 from the California State Council of Service Employees Issues Committee.
Proposition 30 was approved by voters and temporarily raised taxes on people earning more than $250,000.
