Budget Signed by Governor Reflect State’s Priorities, Says Speaker Rendon

SACRAMENTO – Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Paramount) issued the following statement after Governor Jerry Brown signed the 2016-17 state budget:

“The budget the Governor just signed reflects the Assembly’s top priorities, including lifting families out of poverty, increasing access to early childhood education, and making college more accessible for California students. This balanced, on-time budget – which also responsibly grows the state’s rainy day fund – is the result of hundreds of hours of public hearings. That shows the budget process is working and our final product means California is in stronger fiscal shape than we have been for years.”
