Senators Berryhill, Cannella, Emmerson, And Harman Respond To Budget Vote

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

Senators Berryhill, Cannella, Emmerson, and Harman today released the following statement in response to today’s budget vote:

“Today’s actions prove that the bridge tax isn’t a stumbling block – it’s political theater.  The real stumbling block for the Majority Party are the unions and trial lawyers demanding they block the reform proposals we have been pushing for months.

“Instead of a political drill, today we could have had a real bipartisan budget – one that allows voters to weigh in on Governor Brown’s tax proposal as well as a hard spending cap, significant reforms to our broken pension system, and improvements to California’s business climate to spur the economy and get people back to work.”
