Speaker Rendon Statement on May Budget Revision

For immediate release:

SACRAMENTO — Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Lakewood) released the following statement on the release of the May budget revision:

“This is a better budget than the one the Governor proposed in January, and it shows the benefits of the responsible approach that we’ve been taking. While revenues are below what was projected, the state’s fiscal position is strong, giving us the flexibility to avoid cuts and to make targeted investments.

“Between now and June 15th, the Assembly Budget Committee will work to make this an even better budget – keeping our promises to students, patients, and voters, building on our reserves, and continuing California’s progressive momentum.

“We will protect what we have gained and we will persist in moving forward.”
