(SACRAMENTO) – Today, State Assemblymember V. Manuel Pérez released the following statement on Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr.’s 2014-2015 budget proposal:


“The Governor has released his 2014 budget proposal and it’s a good start.  I like that there are many areas of agreement between the Governor’s proposal and the Assembly Blueprint released last month.  I also appreciate the focus placed on promoting fiscal stability and the long-term financial health of our state through building reserves, paying down debt, and addressing liabilities. It’s positive that as we approach negotiations, we share some common ground on important issues such as a Rainy Day fund.  As I read through the details, I will as always be looking carefully at impacts for rural communities, local economic development, and our most vulnerable families.  We are all committed to producing another on-time budget, and the hearing process begins with the budget committee convening next week.”
