Senate Republicans React to Governor's May Revise Plans

Thursday, May 14, 2015

SACRAMENTO – Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar) issued the following statement in response to the Governor’s May Budget Revise.

“We are happy to see the Governor is interested in keeping the promises to invest in education, payoff state budget debts and liabilities, and save money for a rainy day,” said Senator Huff (R-Diamond Bar).

“The plan does miss an opportunity by failing to invest more in California working families. One of the smartest ways to use surplus revenues is to put them to work creating good jobs for Californians by fixing our roads, expanding water storage, and repairing our schools,” said Senator Huff (R-Diamond Bar).

Senator Jim Nielsen (R-Gerber), Vice-Chair of the Senate Budget Committee issued the following statement.

“Putting away money and drawing down debt are responsible actions to safeguard California’s financial future,” said Senator Jim Nielsen (R-Gerber)

“Planning for a rainy day will help ensure we can respond to natural disasters like fires, drought, floods and earth quakes and cushion the blow for those who depend on state services when we face a recession again,” said Senator Nielsen (R-Gerber).
