SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Shirley N. Weber (D-San Diego), Chair of the Assembly Subcommittee on Health and Human Services, issued the following statement in response to the Governor’s May Budget Revision:
“We commend the Governor for his commitment to restore the California Dream and to help working families ensure a better future for their children,” Weber said. “However, we’ve identified a number of issues in recent months that still aren’t addressed in his May Revision. Fortunately, the Governor has left room for discussion and we look forward to working with him over the next few weeks as we move toward a budget that balances fiscal restraint with the need to address the effects of poverty.”
The Governor customarily releases a revised budget proposal in mid-May reflecting the state’s tax receipts. The Legislature and Governor will have until June 15th to negotiate a finalized budget for the 2014-2015 fiscal year.
