Ever since California did the impossible and voted to raise taxes, Sacramento has been a-buzz with an even more impossible task: reforming Prop. 13. First Senator Mark Leno proposed legislation to amend Prop. 13, then Assemblyman Tom Ammiano reintroduced a bill to disallow commercial properties from taking advantage of the law. Now, over the weekend, one of the bills original authors, former State Assemblyman, and local celebrity Willie Brown admits oops, my bad. Brown says law makers never intended to cap corporation's property taxes but that law makers at the time "did not realize" this! At this point it's all talk, but with a democratic supermajority anything is possible. - Victor Obeck
