SACRAMENTO - Today, Assembly Republican Leader Chad Mayes (Yucca Valley) issued the following statement in response to the release of Governor Brown’s May Revision of his 2017-18 budget proposal:

“There will always be budget challenges, but we cannot let it stop us from improving the lives of ordinary Californians.

“Unfortunately this proposal fails to move California in the right direction. Voters recently approved taxes specifically to fund increased access to health and dental care and to support our schools. But this budget pulls a bait and switch, sending that money to the General Fund while ignoring our health and dental care needs and eliminating programs like Career Technical Education in our schools.

“Assembly Republicans have a plan to open a pathway to the middle class for everyone. I look forward to working with my colleagues to craft a budget that works for all Californians.”
