Assemblymember Sebastian Ridley-Thomas Releases Statement on May Budget Revision

Friday, May 12, 2017

SACRAMENTO —Assembly Revenue and Taxation Committee Chair Sebastian Ridley-Thomas (D-Los Angeles) released the following statement on Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr.'s 2017 May Revision Budget Proposal:

“While the Governor’s revised budget seeks to restore some of the funding that was slated to be eliminated in his January proposal, like funding for the Coordinated Care Initiative, additional solutions must be sought and considered to address the needs of low- and moderate-income families.

Housing the homeless, job creation, and advancing wellness (through honoring the will of the voters and drawing matching federal monies via Proposition 56), while prioritizing investments in our state’s human infrastructure are Golden State values that we must uphold as final deliberations are made on the 2017-18 budget.

Although the budget deadline is quickly approaching, I look forward to working with my legislative colleagues in the coming weeks to find thoughtful solutions to systemic problems in this state.”
