Assembly Republicans Stand United to Protect California Taxpayers in Budget Crisis

Assembly Republican Leader Connie Conway, of Tulare, today issued the following statement after Governor Jerry Brown announced his 2011-12 budget proposal:

“Assembly Republicans stand united as the last line of defense for California taxpayers.  There are not votes in the Assembly Republican Caucus to place the same tax increases that voters overwhelmingly rejected less than two years ago back on the ballot.  Californians have sent a strong message at the polls that they want Sacramento to make government live within its means. Assembly Republicans are ready to work with the Governor and Democrats to achieve an on-time, balanced budget that respects the will of the voters.”

Assembly Budget Committee Vice-Chair, Assemblyman Jim Nielsen (R-Gerber), issued this statement:

“Governor Brown today presented his approach to closing California’s $25.4 billion deficit.  The next step in this process is setting priorities and finding the absolutely necessary functions of government.  We must look at ways to maximize every dollar and spend no more than the state takes in.  There’s no doubt that difficult choices lie ahead, but working together I know we can find common-ground for reforms that make government more accountable to the people.”
