SACRAMENTO – CSAC Executive Director Matt Cate issued the following reaction regarding the budget package sent to the Governor.
“California’s 58 counties are generally pleased with this budget and the stability it provides. We applaud the Governor’s overall philosophy of adding to the State’s reserve fund and spending some of the revenue surpluses on one-time projects — as this can help meet the state’s most urgent needs without encumbering future budgets. We also recognize the need to support long-term programs that help our most vulnerable population, which will pay dividends for many years to come.
“We look forward to continuing to work with the Administration, the Legislature and State Departments to ensure the final policy decisions tied to the budget appropriations produce stable, fiscally sound and equitable programs for local governments.”
