Sen. Cannella Issues Statement on Governor Brown's May Revise Budget Proposal

Friday, May 13, 2016

Senator Anthony Cannella (R-Ceres) today issued the following statement regarding Governor Jerry Brown’s revised 2016-17 budget proposal:

“I am glad that the Governor remains committed to fiscal austerity, especially in light of revenues that are nearly $2 billion less than expected. We must continue to bolster our reserves, while rebuilding our transportation system and strengthening education. We have to use any new funds to invest in California and prepare for our next economic downturn. This May Revise shows that we could soon find ourselves facing deficits when the economy inevitably slows again.”
