Assemblymember Bauer-Kahan’s Statement on May Revise Budget

Assemblymember Bauer-Kahan (D-Orinda) Chair of the Assembly Water Parks and Wildlife Committee, statement on the May revise budget

For immediate release:

“The governor’s budget has shown California is facing a tough situation, with nearly $32 billion in deficit. I appreciate the governor proposing that we maintain education funding and thrilled at the critical increase in funding for flood resilience. However, there are serious gaps for youth mental health, transportation, and climate that need to be prioritized. Additionally, our flood resilience funding should not come at the expense of any drought resources. Both will be serious challenges that will continue to face the state. As the legislature works with the Governor to pass a prudent budget, I will fight to ensure District 16’s priorities and the needs of our kids and environment stay front and center.”
