Assembly Budget Chair Phil Ting confirmed on Twitter that the Assembly has passed the 2022-23 state budget on Wednesday night.

Ting said on Twitter, “Proud of the #CaBudget we passed tonight. Real relief for most Californians and big investments in education, infrastructure, safety net programs and more - all while maintaining a healthy reserve.”

Additionally, Ting and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon released a statement about the passing of the state budget.

“The state budget also beefs up social programs - including making health care available to everyone - and expands grants to low-income Californians who may not be eligible for revenue funds,” Rendon and Ting said in a press release. “In addition, we took steps to safeguard California’s future, so we have done two more important things: provided strong funding for educating our children and set money aside for eventual tough times.”
