SACRAMENTO – Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Paramount) and Assembly Budget Chair Phil Ting (D-San Francisco) issued the following statements after the Assembly passed the 2016-17 state budget:

Speaker Rendon:
“This budget is both responsible and visionary. We lift families out of poverty, increase access to Early Childhood Education, and make college more accessible for Californians. We make these investments while ensuring our fiscal stability by growing the state’s Rainy Day Fund. This is a very positive budget – and a very positive step for California.”

Budget Chair Ting:
“This budget focuses on the ingredients for building a stronger middle class. We invest in our future by funding education, reducing poverty and cleaning our environment. We create greater fiscal stability by saving for a rainy day and building the largest reserve in over three decades.”

What Members Are Saying

Assemblymember Kevin Mullin, District 22

“This bill brings California’s election recount process into the 21st century. Elections are a fundamental democratic principle and we must make every effort to ensure their integrity. I believe AB 44, will do just that.”


Assemblymember Jose Medina, District 61

As Chair of the Assembly Higher Education Committee, I know the importance of college affordability and safety. We must ensure students are provided with safe learning environments. In addition, students need transparency in higher education costs in order to make informed financial decisions for college."


Assemblymember Shirley Weber, District 79

"We know that students in foster care are more likely to achieve their full potential when they are provided services designed to meet their particular needs. It's imperative that foster youth get the support and resources they need to succeed academically."
