SACRAMENTO – Today, Assembly Republican Leader Brian Dahle (Bieber) released the following statement in response to the Legislature’s approval of the 2018-19 state budget:
“The Legislature claims to have passed a balanced budget today. Unfortunately, it ignores the state’s $200 billion in unfunded pension debts and liabilities. Eventually, that bill will come due and it’s not likely to happen in a year we have a $9 billion surplus. Sooner or later, taxpayers will pay the price for our government’s irresponsible budgeting.”
Assembly Republican Leader Brian Dahle serves the 1st district in the California Legislature, which includes all or parts of Butte, Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra and Siskiyou counties.
