Salas Responds to Governor’s Budget Proposal


BAKERSFIELD – Assemblymember Rudy Salas (D- Bakersfield) released the following statement today after Governor Brown proposed the 2014-2015 State Budget:

“I applaud the Governor for his fiscal prudence in paying down California’s debt by $11 billion dollars thus building on a sound and strong California economy,” said Assemblymember Salas. “I am also pleased to see the $3 million in job training that I fought hard for last year, an additional investment of $6 billion for our schools and a much needed $23 million for safe drinking water which is critical for small rural communities throughout the Valley,” Salas concluded.
