Statement From Assemblymember David Chiu On Governor Brown’s Budget Proposal

For immediate release:

Assemblymember David Chiu (D – San Francisco) today issued the following statement on Governor Jerry Brown’s budget proposal:

“Today's proposal by the Governor creates a strong foundation for our great state. As a member of the Budget Committee, I’m looking forward to working with my colleagues and the Governor to move the budget process forward. I'm pleased that California's growing economy means we are increasing our investment in education and health care to help our residents succeed. I also applaud the Governor's proposal to double our investment of cap-and-trade dollars for public transit. I do believe there's work to do in the months ahead to identify more solutions to the housing affordable crisis and the income inequality challenge in San Francisco and other areas of California.”
