Sen. Cannella Applauds Passage of Balanced, On-Time State Budget

Sunday, June 15, 2014

Senator Anthony Cannella (R-Ceres) today issued the following statement following the passage of the 2014-15 state budget:

“While this year’s state budget was not perfect, I was pleased to support it. Not only is the budget fiscally restrained, but it puts billions towards paying down state debt and building our rainy-day fund. This budget also increases funding to education, including state preschool for low-income families, and retains the Agriculture Education Incentive Grant Program. This budget supports important public safety programs, such as increased funding for programs to combat human trafficking, jail construction, and court safety.”

“I am concerned that an important policy change to restrict school districts was included in the trailer bills. I hope that we can do further work to ensure that school districts are able to save for future costs as they see fit.”
