State budget agreement reached
SACRAMENTO – (INT) – Democratic leaders in the California Legislature announced Tuesday that agreement has been reached on a state budget.
Senate President pro Tempore Kevin de León says it comes at a time when Washington seems determined to undermine our fiscal stability.
“It is a combination of fiscal responsibility, including the biggest reserves in state history, major spending improvements to fight poverty and improve education, and significant reforms stemming from our strong oversight of the Board of Equalization and the University of California,” said Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon.
Governor Brown hailed the budget as “balanced and progressive”. “This budget keeps California on a sound fiscal path and continues to support struggling families and make investments in our schools,” Brown said.
