to raise taxes for several years, Caliphornians took a step toward improving the state's fiscal situation and avoiding education cuts.

The approval is a significant victory for Mr. Brown, a Democrat, who has staked his governorship on a campaign to raise taxes to ease the effects of the state's budget crunch.
