Senators Berryhill, Cannella, Emmerson, and Harman today released the following statement in response to Governor Brown’s comments on vetoing the majority vote budget:
“While the Governor did the right thing by vetoing the Democrats sham budget, we challenge his assertion that Republicans have blocked the right of the people to vote.
“In fact, it’s the Democrats who are holding California hostage by refusing to allow the voters to weigh in on meaningful structural reforms -- not just Governor Brown’s tax proposal.
“We have been consistent and clear from day one – let the people vote on the reforms that would end our state’s chronic budget deficits and put Californians back to work. Let them have a say in the future of California. Let’s get this done.”
