For immediate release:

Sacramento, CA—On Tuesday, January 10, 2023, Speaker Designate Robert Rivas (D-Salinas) released the following statement regarding the Governor’s proposed 2023-2024 budget:

“Today’s budget proposal is a strong starting point towards maintaining the state’s promise to defend and grow the California Dream. Despite a projected budget shortfall, past fiscal prudence has positioned us to continue the significant progress we have made in recent years on our state’s biggest challenges, including the cost of living, homelessness, and the ongoing climate crisis.
