Majority Leader Hertzberg Responds to Governor’s Proposed Budget

January 10, 2019

SACRAMENTO – Senate Majority Leader Bob Hertzberg (D-Van Nuys) released the following statement today in response to Governor Gavin Newsom’s proposed 2019-20 Budget:

“Governor Newsom just released a budget proposal that is visionary, yet prudent – and proved himself a true policy wonk. He walked a careful line between providing a foundation for progress, without running the risk of overspending. I commend him for proposing that we pay down our pensions to help schools, and agree that we are at a moment of great opportunity to make thoughtful reforms to our tax system.”
