SACRAMENTO - Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown (D-San Bernardino) issues the following statement commenting on the May Revise:
“I am very pleased that the Governor’s proposed a budget that is fiscally responsible and increases funding for our courts, schools and public safety. As Chair of the Assembly Committee on Aging and Long-Term Care, I am also pleased to see the Governor has committed to restore funding for IHHS and CalWORKs. However, I will continue to work with the Governor to ensure that senior support programs and SSI/SSP are funded at their prerecession levels. Every day for the next 13 years 1,000 Californians will turn 65 and it is imperative that we commit the necessary resources to ensure that they have the opportunity to age with dignity.”
SAN BERNARDINO – A project designed to improve the interchange at I-10 and Riverside Avenue in the City of Rialto is under consideration for a $72 million grant funded by the United States Department of Transportation. If awarded, the funds will be allocated to support construction and expansion of the I-10 interchange and Riverside Avenue.
“As a member of the Transportation Committee, I’m really excited that the City of Rialto is being considered for a federal grant to improve and expand the Riverside Avenue and I-10 freeway interchange. I commend Mayor Deborah Robertson for her tireless efforts to fund this important project, and Caltrans for providing a recommendation to the Department of Transportation. The Inland Empire, known as a transportation hub for both rail and truck service, is one of the fastest growing regions in the state. If selected, the project would benefit commuters, companies moving freight in and through San Bernardino County, and companies shipping goods and services in and out of the BNSF Intermodal Railway. It would have a strong economic impact on our community by creating local jobs and investing in area businesses. As a proud recipient of the Legislator of the Year Award by the California Trucking Association for promoting the efficient movement of goods, I enthusiastically support this vital transportation project,” remarked Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown (D-San Bernardino).

“Our community is extremely excited that U.S. Bank and Related Companies have collaborated to increase affordable housing in San Bernardino County,” Assemblymember Brown said. “The Inland Empire was ravaged by the housing crisis and affordable developments that also act as a delivery point for social services are needed in our community.”

SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown releases the following statement on the Assembly voting to increase the minimum wage:
“It is a great day in California when the Legislature can give six million Californians a raise by voting to increase the minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2022. Wages have been stagnant for too long and our economic growth has been stifled because too many full-time workers have been relegated to poverty. I voted for SB 3 because it strikes the right balance between increasing incomes for millions of Californians while providing the state flexibility in times of economic or budgetary hardship.”

“Our community has experienced an immense and tragic loss. My deepest sympathies and prayers go out to the family, loved ones, and friends of Jason Spears, who was a victim of senseless gang violence this past Sunday night in San Bernardino. I wish Jason's cousin, Terrance Spears, who was also shot but is expected to survive, a speedy recovery. At this time, our community must stand together to put an end to this unnecessary and barbaric violence. We must help the authorities find the cowards who have inflicted immense pain to an entire community, and implement strategies to end the rise in violence and crime we are currently experiencing. Within the coming months, I will be convening a special legislative panel in San Bernardino to begin the process of finding solutions.”
