WASHINGTON D.C. – Today Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez (D-Los Angeles) issued the following statement regarding Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s withdrawal of support for the Tranquillion Ridge project:

“Governor Schwarzenegger made the right decision for California today by finally withdrawing his support for the Tranquillon Ridge project. As he stated, the crisis in the Gulf of Mexico right now clearly and dramatically underscores the danger of off-shore drilling. This was exactly why the Assembly rejected this project when it came before us last year as a part of the Budget Package—and it’s exactly why the business as usual practice of ramming through major policy changes that have nothing to do with the budget in exchange for a few votes from the minority party is the wrong way for California to approve a budget package.”
