Senator Borgeas Responds to Governor’s Budget Proposal

Senator Andreas Borgeas (R-Fresno) issued the following statement in response to the Governor’s May revision of the 2021-22 Budget:

“The Governor’s use of unanticipated revenue for one-time investments may give Californians a short term boost from the pandemic, but many of these programs are unsustainable and impractical in the long run. California taxpayers are funding the billions of dollars in #RecallRebates being distributed by the Governor. Instead of throwing around billions, and at speeds where accountability and efficacy processes remain questionable, I would encourage the Governor to focus on long-term, sustainable strategies to solve our state’s issues surrounding homelessness, housing affordability, education, water infrastructure, economic growth and wildfires.”
