Senator Anthony Cannella (R-Ceres) today issued the following statement regarding Governor Jerry Brown’s revised 2014-15 budget proposal:
“The Governor’s revised budget shows necessary restraint in spending, allowing us to continue to pay down debt. As we see our revenues rise, we must remain focused on addressing our long term challenges. The Governor correctly pointed out the extreme fluctuations that have come from capital gains and the dangers of using those funds on new spending.
“I applaud the Governor for highlighting our unfunded liabilities. We must have a plan that makes serious inroads so that they do not continue to grow. It is our responsibility to address this issue now so that our next generation does not have to pay for our inability to spend within our means.”
