Majority Leader Hertzberg Comments on 2020 State of the State Address

February 19, 2020

SACRAMENTO – Senate Majority Leader Bob Hertzberg (D-Van Nuys) released the following statement today in response to Governor Gavin Newsom delivering his 2020 State of the State Address:

“Today’s State of the State Address was different than any I’ve seen since Ronald Reagan’s time. It is completely unique, and completely appropriate, that Governor Newsom focused his entire address on the critical issue of housing and homelessness. The Governor outlined in detail many thoughtful and deliberate proposals for the Legislature to consider in the coming months. But most importantly, he expressed the deep frustration that I know many Californians are feeling about this urgent crisis.”
