SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Marc Berman (D-Menlo Park) released the following statement in response to Governor Gavin Newsom’s revised budget:
This year California has a remarkable opportunity to make transformative investments that will shape the lives of Californians for decades. I commend the Governor for laying out a forward-thinking plan in his May Revision of the budget that prioritizes rebuilding California through massive infrastructure investments and I look forward to these investments reaching my district.
In particular, I applaud the Governor’s proposed investments in combating climate change, with a significant focus on drought, historic funding to transform public education, with additional investments to address the urgent crisis of youth mental health, and unprecedented funding to combat California’s most critical issue: homelessness. I look forward to reviewing in more detail the proposals he laid out today as the Legislature works to adopt a budget for the next fiscal year."
