Assemblymember Chris Holden’s Statement on Governor’s 2-14-2015 Budget Proposal

Black news from Pasadena - News In Brief - California budget and future"I am very pleased that the state's finances continue to turn around and that Governor Brown has proposed reinvesting in California's future while maintaining budget stability. That's good news for our state and for the 41st Assembly District.

This budget reverses the severe cuts experienced by our public schools and colleges during the recent recession. It means our local school districts will see increases in K-12 school funding by $2,188 per student over last year. Our community colleges, such as Pasadena City College, Citrus, and Mt. San Antonio will also see an increase in funding that will allow them to restore much needed classes.

I applaud the Governor for reinvesting in California's infrastructure needs in a fiscally responsible manner including moving forward with deferred maintenance to our parks and roadways.

The Governor's proposed budget will put California on solid ground to build up reserves, pay down debt, and invest in a growing economy."
