SACRAMENTO – Assembly Speaker Toni G. Atkins (D-San Diego) released the following statement regarding Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr.’s budget proposal:

“The governor has given us a realistic and practical starting point for the budget process. I’m pleased the budget includes several Assembly priorities, including increasing funding for schools and community colleges, keeping UC affordable and focused on California students, increasing workforce development for Californians struggling to make it into the middle class, and restoring the IHSS program that helps keep vulnerable Californians out of institutions. Assembly Budget Chair Shirley Weber and the Assembly Budget Committee will move the process forward and I am confident that by summer we will have a spending plan that balances our resources with California’s needs and aspirations. I have no doubt that we will deliver an on-time, prudent, effective budget just as we have the past four years.”
