Although they aren’t exactly singing kumbaya, the California Chamber of Commerce, health insurance corporations and proponents of greater access to health care are backing a major tax deal devised by aides to Gov. Jerry Brown.

The Legislature appears set to approve the package as early as Thursday, and it should.

As part of the deal, Brown and Democratic leaders earmarked an additional $300 million annually for roughly 300,000 people with developmental disabilities.
