Senator Michael MORRELL’s   

Response to Governor's State Budget Revision


California Capital Sacramento___

Senator Mike Morrell (R-Rancho Cucamonga) Thursday, May 9, 2019 issued the following statement in response to Governor Gavin Newsom’s May revision of his 2019-20 state budget proposal:

“Under one-party rule in Sacramento, it is clear that government will never be too big or powerful for Democratic leaders.

“Californians continue to be concerned about the quality of life here.

“They see increases in property and violent crime rates, thanks to laws like AB 109 that push criminals out of jail early and others that downgraded felonies to misdemeanors.

“They see gas prices soaring and everyday necessities becoming more expensive.

“Yet the governor says the state has an estimated $21.5-billion budget surplus and the majority party thinks it is open season to raise taxes.

Legislative tax proposals alone total at least $6.2 billion this year.  

“One would think the ruling party would finally conclude that Californians pay enough and want government to make do with what it has. Wishful thinking.”
