SACRAMENTO – Senator Steven Bradford (D-Gardena) released the following statement in response to Governor Newsom’s Budget Proposal for 2021-2022.
“Governor Newsom’s 2021-2022 budget proposal reflects what we are all hoping, that things are getting back on track and in a better way. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to devastate California, but thanks to the swift actions taken last year by the Legislature and the Governor, we are in a strong position to combat this crisis and rebuild our economy. I am pleased to see the Governor’s budget include investments in equity, which are critical to not only to lead our state out of the pandemic, but to come away where every Californian is stronger. We do not want to go back to where we were, we want a more just economy moving forward.
