Economy: How would you fix California's budget problems?

California is facing a seemingly intractable budget crisis. The unwillingness of the state's leaders, and its voters, to face up to the need for tax increases has left its once enviable infrastructure, including one of the best school systems in the world, in tatters. The Next 10 California Budget Challenge presents you with the same choices elected officials are struggling with, and forwards your solutions to legislators and the gov. Since apparently no one is willing to address Prop 13, the anti-democratic budget process (a super-majority is required to pass tax increases), out-of-control ballot initiatives, and a chief executive in way over his head, the whole thing is an exercise in futility, but for policy wonks its kind of fun.

Go. Take the challenge: Next 10.
