Reaction to Governor Newsom’s proposed budget
Reaction has been varied and along party lines to Governor Newsom's proposed state budget.

Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron
“If the governor really wants to turn things around in California, he needs to make government more responsive, efficient and competent — not just bigger.”

Senator Connie M. Leyva (D-Chino)
“It certainly prioritizes the current and ongoing needs of California residents. In particular, I appreciate his continued focus on strengthening access to childcare, addressing the climate crisis, and improving education.”

Majority Leader Eloise Gómez Reyes(D-Colton)
“This early budget proposal addresses the important issues that Californians up and down the state have identified as vital for our future success. Working together, 2022 will be a year we continue to expand environmental, social and economic protections for our most vulnerable communities in California and continue California’s robust economic recovery.”

Assemblymember James C. Ramos (D-Highland)
“I applaud the governor’s inclusion of tribal communities in the $648 million to fight fires and $1.2 billion forest management funding programs to address these issues. California Native Americans have valuable expertise to lend to these efforts”.

Assemblymember Jose Medina (D-Riverside)
“I am happy to see a historic and unprecedented budget surplus, which will be used to tackle the crises of our time, including the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change and drought, homelessness, housing, and healthcare access.

University of California President Michael V. Drake
“Gov. Newsom’s proposed five-year funding compact offers budget stability and reliable support to the University’s tripartite mission of teaching, research and public service. This sustained commitment will enable UC to make critical long-term investments, particularly in areas that directly support our students.”
