Bocanegra deserves some credit

Re "Ammiano bill would close a Proposition 13 loophole" (Editorials, May 20): I could hardly ask for a better editorial on my attempt to fix one of the big tax inequities in California, but I do have to share credit with Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra, D-Los Angeles, who is now the joint author of AB 2372. I have worked on Proposition 13 issues since I got to Sacramento, but closing the change-of-ownership loophole is much closer to reality because Bocanegra has applied his expertise. He improved the bill language and brought parties to the table to support the bill. If this bill makes it to Gov. Jerry Brown's as we hope, the taxpayers of California will owe him thanks.

-- Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, D-San Francisco
