Sen. Cannella Votes Against Unrealistic State Budget

Monday, June 15, 2015

Senator Anthony Cannella (R-Ceres) today issued the following statement following the passage of the 2015-16 state budget:

“I was unable to support the budget that was brought before the Senate today as it overstates our state revenues. We need to be realistic in our budgeting to ensure that we do not repeat the mistakes of the past. It is important to remain financially prudent and be prepared for the next downturn.”

“While there are important aspects of the budget that I agree with, such as increased funding for education, transportation and healthcare, I hope that we are able to find a more reasonable spending plan by June 30. I look forward to working with my fellow legislators over the coming weeks in order to support a budget that is right for California.”
