Sacramento, CA – Today, Governor Jerry Brown presented his proposed Fiscal Year 2017-18 Budget. For the first time in four years Brown projects a state deficit – 1.6 billion from declining revenue – that he proposes to offset with $3.2 billion in budget solutions. Assemblymember Chris Holden released the following statement:
I’m most disappointed in the one million dollar one-time cut in funding for the renovation of the Pasadena Playhouse that already passed in Fiscal Year 2016-2017 Budget. This cut is especially deep as the Playhouse, the official State Theater of California, celebrates its 100th Anniversary.
