“While we collectively work to get needed federal aid from Washington, there is no question that substantial additional revenue action from the state will be necessary. We are all hurting and this crisis calls for multimillionaires and billionaires to help our state shoulder this extraordinary burden. While there is no single action that will solve all our problems, we shouldn't be looking to the already overburdened working and middle class to solve the crisis. The Senate has created a revenue working group that has been diligently developing proposals over the last few months that will help guide our approach.”
