Response to Governor's 2017-18 Budget Announcement

January 10, 2017

The Governor released his 2017-18 budget proposals. Senator Jean Fuller (R-Bakersfield) issued the following statement.

“Senate Republicans will continue to be laser-focused on championing solutions that promote jobs and make California more affordable. Californians expect their government to spend responsibly and we are facing a deficit of $2 billion if we don’t live within our means.

“Our state also cannot lose sight of the significant role the federal government plays in our budget and the lives of all Californians. The federal government contributes nearly $60 billion to our healthcare system. As state leaders, we should be there to improve our healthcare system. I will work with House Majority Leader McCarthy and the new administration to ensure California gets what California deserves,” said Senator Fuller (R-Bakersfield).
