"No budget is perfect, and no side got everything they wanted. But with the investments we made and the restraint we showed, this budget absolutely keeps faith with the vital priorities of ensuring stability and expanding opportunity."

"The budget sets in place a plan of shared responsibility to make the teacher's retirement system solvent. Solvency of the State Teachers Retirement Fund makes sure that the money is there when it is needed and protects classroom spending."

"Today we have made wise investments in our future while paying down over $10 billion in debt and putting over $2 billion away in rainy day funds and reserves. There is still a lot of work left to be done, but we are on a better path."

"The budget provides over $100 million for affordable housing and will help create jobs in areas of new construction. It also contains a $500 million allocation to county sheriff's offices for jail space and other facilities to help ease the cost of prison realignment on our local law enforcement officials with a special emphasis on rehabilitation."

"For higher education, this budget provides a 5 percent increase for the University of California and California State University on the condition that tuition and fees are frozen.  This will allow our universities to expand educational opportunities for more California residents."

"For years, the Great Recession hampered our ability to maintain our network of roads, bridges and railways. With this budget, we'll finally start to make some progress on improving the infrastructure that millions of Californians depend on each and every day."

"As a breadwinner mom, I'm most proud that this state budget reflects priorities for California that I'd want for my own household: more funding for child care and education, more repairs to our basic infrastructure, and a fund that allows us to save money for a rainy day."

“We need to increase the number of college-educated workers if we want to ensure that California will be able to keep up with the demands of a 21st century workforce. We must continue to keep in mind our state’s long-term success and make education a priority for California’s future.”

"Supporting the arts is not only the right thing to do - it's an investment that is guaranteed to pay the state back. The creative sector has become Californian's most important driver of economic growth. The capacity of our workers and students to compete in a global creative economy is currently being undermined after years of budget cuts to arts programs."
