I agree with most everything here. However,state pensions are not payed for by property taxes. We definitely need pension reform. Stop delaying required payments, reduce total state employees, and reduce pension benefits for new employees.

This will take pressure off the need for an income tax increase, but I don't think we should replace property taxes with income taxes. The property tax is a "good" tax as it is more directly apparent to the payer, thus easier to keep in check (we do need some tweaks, such as Chris Lauzen's property tax plan).

How much of that $10 billion pension bond issue will have been spent on current operating expenses and expanding state government?
