SACRAMENTO –Assemblyman Bill Brough (R-Dana Point) reacted today to Governor Gavin Newsom’s 2020-2021 budget proposal:
“The Governor's budget would spend a record-high $222 billion, an increase of $8 billion over last year while more and more Californians struggle with affordability. California families and businesses deserve an affordable California. This will not be solved by tax increases but by lasting reforms to reverse the years of over taxing, regulating and spending. I applaud the Governor for addressing California’s staggering home prices and out-of-control homelessness problem.
We need to look at the layers of regulation, permitting fees and requirements that actually make homes expensive to build. I stand ready to work with the Governor and my colleagues on sensible solutions without further burdening hardworking Californians.”
