Local Legislator weighs in on the introduction of the 2018-2019 CA Budget
(SACRAMENTO, CA) Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia (D-Coachella) has released the following statements on Governor Brown’s initial 2018-2019 state budget proposal:
“I commend Governor Brown on his steadfast commitment to producing a thoughtful, inclusive and fiscally responsible budget to meet California’s current and future needs. This proposed $190.3 billion budget will leave us with $15.8 billion in total reserves; largest reserve in our state’s history. There are a lot of positive examples to point to that stem from the success of our prior legislative initiatives; for that I thank the residents of the 56th Assembly District for all their input, collaboration and support. This year, I look forward to working with my fellow legislators, in the committee process, to identify additional resources for our local communities. Particularly, we are going to pursue money for the Salton Sea as well as the expansion of education, economic and healthcare opportunities,” stated Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia.
