Berryhill calls for responsible use of significant surplus in Brown budget

Wednesday, January 10, 2018

Sacramento – Senator Tom Berryhill (R-Modesto) issued the following statement in response to Governor Jerry Brown’s proposed California budget:

“Governor Brown’s budget only proves what Republicans have been saying all along: Taxes are too darn high. Instead of spending the significant surplus on new government programs that will only lead to even higher taxes in down years, let’s at least put the money to good use by paying down pension debt, investing in local communities and protecting against economic downturns in the future.”
