Senator Anthony Cannella (R-Ceres) today issued the following statement regarding Governor Jerry Brown’s revised 2012-13 budget plan:
“I am pleased to see Governor Brown has focused on permanently eliminating our state’s structural debt, but am concerned about a plan that relies on the passage of new taxes before voters have made their decision. It is unfortunate we continue to face multibillion dollar shortfalls. Hopefully my colleagues in the Legislature have the political will to make the structural reforms necessary to end the cycle.
“We have to keep a focus on creating jobs for unemployed Californians, which I believe is the best way to get our budget back on track. I look forward to continuing my efforts to eliminate regulations that are stifling businesses and create a less hostile business environment.”
