State Legislature Votes on Budget; Awaits Governor’s Signature

Thursday, June 13, 2019

SACRAMENTO— Today, the legislature voted on and passed the state budget, which awaits the Governor’s signature for full passage.

“With over $19 billion in reserves for future rainy days, this budget is fiscally responsible while improving housing, expanding health care and boosting education. As Chair of the Assembly Committee on Higher Education, I am particularly pleased that funding is being invested in our students, especially in mental health, housing, financial aid and enrollment. I look forward to our Governor’s signature on this budget so that we can pass one of the most progressive budgets in California’s history.”
