LOS ANGELES (AP) - Advocates say a translation glitch in California's Korean-language voter guide has prompted the state to reprint and resend the paperwork to residents.
Yongho Kim of the Korean Resource Center in Los Angeles says the Korean translation of the guide stated that Proposition 30 would raise the sales tax by 25 cents instead of a quarter of a penny.
Kim says advocates asked the secretary of state to fix the error and officials have moved to print and send the revised pages to residents.
A message left with the secretary of state's office was not immediately returned Wednesday.
Gov. Jerry Brown's initiative proposes a temporary quarter-cent increase in the statewide sales tax and higher income taxes on those making more than $250,000 a year to help fund schools.
