January 5, 2021

SACRAMENTO— Senate President pro Tempore Toni G. Atkins (D-San Diego) and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Lakewood) issued the following statement regarding Governor Gavin Newsom’s proposed Equitable Recovery for California’s Business and Jobs Plan:


“Californians are hurting and need immediate assistance to weather the current crisis. A unified effort is critical to success and we look forward to working with the Governor on the specifics of his, and legislative, proposals to take early action in providing meaningful additional relief. As we work toward passing a final budget in June, we must continue on the responsible path of ensuring our actions strengthen California and our communities, and not add to the economic challenges we are facing.”
