Governor Jerry Brown wants to place a measure on the ballot in early June that would extend several tax increases - but says he needs at least four Republican votes to do so.

Democratic Senate Leader Darrell Steinberg is telling lawmakers to be prepared to meet tomorrow, over the weekend, and Monday morning - and he says time is running short.

Steinberg: "There is a point where June 7th wouldn't be possible, and I think, you know, it's several days is really what the flex is.  And we're all aiming for June the 7th.  So obviously, the next day, two days are gonna be very crucial."

The governor is meeting privately with five Republican Senators.  Their proposals include a state spending cap, pension reforms and more.
