Hearings Nixed, Dems Push Tax Hikes

The State Assembly has canceled hearings tomorrow and Wednesday. Assembly Democrats will instead travel throughout the state to urge support for tax increases to help solve the state€™s record budget deficit.

Republicans still haven€™t budged, saying they won´t accept any plan that includes higher taxes.

Lawmakers are working against the July First start of the new fiscal year.
