Senate Leader Atkins, Budget Chair Skinner Issue Statement on Governor’s Revised 2022-23 Budget Proposal

May 13, 2022

SACRAMENTO – Senate President pro Tempore Toni G. Atkins (D-San Diego) Senator Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley), Chair of the Senate Budget & Fiscal Review Committee, released the following statement today on Governor Gavin’s Newsom’s revised 2022-23 budget proposal:

“The budget proposals revealed by Governor Newsom this week have been encouraging. Some, like funding for reproductive health care, are parallel to the path charted in the Senate’s budget plan. Others, as happens every year, will require more discussion and negotiation. As we continue our work on the budget, we look forward to collaborating with Speaker Rendon and our Assembly colleagues on a joint Legislative budget proposal, and then discussions with the Governor that will lead to a final agreement. The bottom line is, California will have another responsible, on-time budget that provides immediate and long-term benefits to all Californians, and maintains our state’s overall financial strength in case of potential downturns in the future.”
