CSAC Applauds Governor’s Fiscal Prudence
Proposed Budget Balances Discipline with Investing in Health Care, Public Safety
The following statement is from CSAC President and Contra Costa County Supervisor John Gioia in reaction to the Governor’s budget proposal for 2014-15.
We commend the Governor for presenting a budget proposal that balances the need for continued fiscal discipline – which has helped the state recover from the recession – and the importance of investing in education, health care, public safety, and rebuilding the state’s aging infrastructure. California counties are uniquely positioned to work with the Governor and the Legislature on achieving our mutual goal of healthy and safe communities.
In particular, counties are gratified that the Governor recognizes health care and public safety as key priorities for improving our communities.
