Friday, May 13, 2016

SACRAMENTO - California Senate President pro Tempore Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) released the following statement on Governor Jerry Brown’s May Revise budget proposal:

“Homelessness plagues communities across our state so I’m very pleased Governor Brown has embraced the Senate’s bipartisan ‘No Place Like Home’ proposal to direct $2 billion from the Prop 63 bond to bolster local efforts to tackle this crisis. I look forward to negotiations with the Administration and our new Speaker Anthony Rendon in the coming month to deliver an on-time budget. We will push to reform our discriminatory Maximum Family Grant limit, expand access to affordable childcare, create more slots in our public university system, and strengthen the pipeline from K-12 to college.”
