​Response to the Governor’s

$$$ 113 Billion Budget ?   

Friday January 9, 2015,  Assemblyman Jay Obernolte  (R-Big Bear Lake) released the following statement in response to Governor Brown’s $113 billion California state budget proposal:     

“I am optimistic to see that the Governor’s budget includes paying down the wall of debt and setting aside money in the rainy day fund to minimize the impact of a future recession. I am also encouraged that the budget contains an increase in court funding.  The recent court closures in my district have restricted access to justice and I am hopeful that this additional funding will provide the resources needed to reopen these facilities.     

 “Unfortunately, the Governor’s aggressive environmental policies will continue to hamper economic growth by increasing costs on families and businesses throughout my district and the state.  In order to continue our economic recovery, we need to implement policies that incentivize innovation and create jobs.”
