Senator Anthony Cannella Issues Statement on Governor's Budget

Monday, January 10, 2011

State Senator Anthony Cannella (R-Ceres) today issued the following statement responding to the state budget proposal released by Governor Brown this morning:

“The budget proposal Gov. Brown put forth today does include some very important spending reductions, and I appreciate his recognition of the urgent need to reform the way our government works for the people of California.

“That said, I’m concerned Californians are already struggling because of higher and higher taxes in the midst of a struggling economy, and I urge Gov. Brown to work with the Legislature to craft a budget that heeds voters’ calls to make our government live within its means – just as every other California family is doing during these difficult economic times.”
