When Governor Jerry Brown announced the number of signatures for his tax proposal, perhaps no one was more excited than his dog Sutter.

Speaking outside the Sacramento County Elections Office, Brown called California's finances "screwed up" and said passage of his proposed tax measure is crucial.

 "It's balanced, it's fair, and it will take a major step forward in putting California in a very solid position."

 The initiative would raise income taxes on the wealthiest Californians for seven years and increase the sales tax a quarter cent for four years.

State and county elections officials will now start the certification process to see if Brown's initiative qualifies for the November ballot.
