(Sacramento, CA) Following the release of Governor Newsom’s “May Revision” budget proposal, Assembly Member Miguel Santiago (D-Los Angeles) released the following statement:

We know that the state’s current budget challenges are significant and will require difficult decisions,” said Assembly Member Santiago. “I am encouraged that the Governor’s May Revision is forward-looking and improves budget options in the future, but we must fight to protect critical investments that help all Californians weather the challenges of everyday life, such as rising rents, food insecurity, and other core health and human services programs.”

“I remain committed to ensuring a robust and healthy economy, but we must address the budget crisis head on while continuing to uplift our most vulnerable Californians. I look forward to continuing this work over the coming months to build a California for ALL. Let’s get it done!”
