Sacramento – Assembly Majority Whip Chris Holden (D-Pasadena) released the following statement on the Governor’s 2013-14 State Budget Proposal:
“The Governor’s proposal marks a defining moment for California’s budget. For the first time in several years, California is not facing drastic cuts to important services.
I am especially pleased that the Governor’s proposal offers more money for public education, colleges and health care. These are areas that were severely affected by sharp reductions in funding over the past few years and will welcome the additional money.
