SACRAMENTO – State Senator Marty Block today issued the following statement upon passage of California’s 2014-15 budget:
“California has approved its fourth consecutive and on-time and balanced budget. At $108 billion, it is a stronger state spending plan than we have seen in recent years. It continues our reinvestment in K-12 education that is so important to California’s future. We were able to reinvest in early childhood learning, career education, disabled student services and our higher education system.
“In addition we set aside $10.4 billion in debt repayment and $2.1 billion for a Rainy Day reserve fund.
“It’s an imperfect budget created through an imperfect process, but it is a budget that honors our most important priorities for children and securing our future. More importantly, it is further evidence that California is on the rebound.”
Proudly representing the cities and communities of San Diego, Del Mar, Solana Beach, and Coronado
