Today, Assemblymember Tony Thurmond (D-Richmond), Chair of the Assembly Budget Subcommittee No.1 on Health and Human Services, approved a number of investments in the areas of his subcommittee.
“I’m incredibly proud of our work in Sub 1 this year,” said Assemblymember Thurmond. “Working with Speaker Atkins and the Assembly Budget Chair, Dr. Shirley Weber, I was empowered to develop a robust plan of investment for our state in the areas of health and human services. With the help of my colleagues on the committee, I can honestly say that I’m excited for what we've accomplished with our plan. Today, we sent a clear message of our values. We've made the governor’s proposal stronger, and, in so doing, we've found innovative ways to provide assistance to our most vulnerable throughout the state.”
