SACRAMENTO, CA – Senator Brian Dahle (R-Bieber) reacted to the today’s release of the May Revise budget proposal.
“It is a shocking revelation that California’s budget surplus is now over $97 billion, which equates to $2,400+ per resident, and the governor has proposed only returning a small portion to the taxpayers who generated it. Yes, California should invest in priorities like addressing the mental health and homelessness problem, improving education, water shortages, and wildfire risks, but we cannot continue to throw taxpayer dollars at failed policies that lack real solutions to these challenges. I look forward to discussing those solutions and returning tax dollars to Californians,” said Senator Brian Dahle (R-Bieber)
Senate Republicans have expressed their priorities in a letter to Legislative Budget Chairs, and look forward to discussing them in the upcoming Budget negotiations.
