Today, Governor Brown released his revised state spending plan. In response, Senator Jean Fuller (R-Bakersfield) released the following statement:
“As the legislature gets their turn to pile on new and expanded government spending to the Governor’s revised budget, I challenge my colleagues to make affordability a higher priority in the state’s budget and resist the urge to grow government.
“Since the start of the legislative session, taxpayers have already been saddled with historic tax increases, threatened with higher tuition costs, and warned to prepare for higher home energy costs. Give taxpayers a break, spend their money efficiently, and send the governor a more effective budget that takes into account the rising cost to live and work in California.”
