The bullet train won't be on the November ballot, but it will be on many Californians' minds as they decide the fate of Gov. Jerry Brown's tax proposal.
That's what I keep hearing from e-mailers such as Fred: "Many voters will not support Jerry's tax plan so long as his budget includes monies for high speed rail."
And Bob: "Every time Jerry Brown mentions the bullet train, the two November tax increase measures lose votes. More and more voters just don't want to give the state any more money."
