LA TIMES COVERAGE OF CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP DEAL

Howard Jarvis group won’t oppose bill to close Prop. 13 loophole is how the L.A. Times headlined their story about the deal struck with Assemblymember Bocanegra.  Click here to read the full story.  However, here is a fun excerpt outlining some of the committee hearing:

 Lenny Goldberg, leader of the California Tax Reform Assn., praised the measure as a “step forward” and noted the irony of being on the same side as his frequent foes.

 “I get a little nervous sitting here with Rex Hime,” president of the California Business Properties Assn., Goldberg deadpanned. “He and I have been at it for many, many years.”

 Hime, in a quick rejoinder, said he gets “a little tongue-tied sitting next to Lenny.”

 Hime later said he believed that the unlikely coalition of supporters would stick together “unless one side or the other gets greedy.”
