Serious Solutions Needed for Serious Challenges

(Sacramento, CA)  Senator Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) today issued the following statement in response to the Governor’s budget proposal:

“No one is immune from the tough choices that must be made. As we tackle the budget, I encourage all sides to ensure their rhetoric creates solutions and not enemies.”

“At this time, more than ever, we can’t afford to let dogma and political games prevent us from protecting California’s most vulnerable citizens. We face serious impacts to education, healthcare and public safety, and we must not allow incendiary rhetoric to stop progress and distract from the real issues.”

“As we resolve the budget, we must create new industries that will put Californians, our most valuable resource, back to work”
