Speaker Rendon Reacts to Governor’s Budget Proposal

For immediate release:

SACRAMENTO — Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Lakewood) issued the following statement after Gov. Jerry Brown released his initial budget proposal:

“California’s economic health is stable because of the genius of its people. They removed the 2/3 budget vote that allowed hardliner hostage taking, they provided increased revenues to make important progress, and they elected a Democratic governor and legislature who have repeatedly demonstrated a commitment to responsible progressive investment, fiscal prudence, and debt reduction.

“The Governor’s final proposed budget is no exception, and follows key priorities outlined by the Assembly Budget Committee chair last month, namely fully funding the Rainy Day Fund and the schools’ Local Control Funding Formula. The Assembly Budget Committee will begin its hearings this month, and we will work with the Governor and our Senate colleagues to pass another on-time, balanced budget that best meets the needs of the state, reflects the values of Californians, and plants the necessary seeds for the future.”
