Sacramento, CA - Assemblymember Jim Frazier released the following statement today regarding Governor Edmund G. Brown’s budget proposal:
I want to commend the Governor for his ongoing commitment to fiscal responsibility.
Through his leadership, California has eliminated a $20 billion budget deficit. Governor Brown has won the people’s trust by addressing our budget problems with real, long-term solutions, not borrowing and gimmicks. Through the passage of Proposition 30 we have been able to protect funding for schools, and put this state on the road to fiscal recovery.
I am pleased to see this budget includes an increase in education funding and a solid reserve.
I look forward to engaging in the process with my colleagues in the coming months to ensure we continue on this fiscally responsible path.
