Senator Yee Responds to Governor's Budget Proposal

January 10, 2013

SACRAMENTO – Senator Leland Yee (D-San Francisco/San Mateo) issued the following statement in response to Governor Jerry Brown’s budget proposal:

“I am very pleased to see that California has finally eliminated our structural deficit. No longer are we facing a state budget with severe cuts to our schools and social services. Instead, the Governor has put forward a balanced budget that increases funding for K-12 education, can prevent tuition hikes at UC, CSU and community colleges, and implements federal health care reform. Now it is imperative the Legislature approves a budget that addresses the needs of our students, working families, seniors, and the most vulnerable, and helps ensure we continue on a healthy path to economic recovery.”
