Ting Statement on the Governor’s May Revise

For immediate release:

Assemblymember Phil Ting (D-San Francisco), Chair of the Assembly Budget Committee, released the following statement about the Governor’s May Revision for the 2022-23 state budget:

“Another budget surplus enables us to continue the work we began in last year’s budget, protecting the promises we made, while also safeguarding existing programs that help millions of Californians. We additionally have more opportunities to invest in long-term infrastructure projects to secure the state’s future for generations to come, especially when it comes to schools. Much of the May Revise keeps us on this same path and aligns with the Assembly Budget Blueprint. We’ve been working on a fiscal plan for months and remain focused on targeted tax relief for families who need it the most. We look forward to working with the Senate to deliver a balanced, on-time budget by the June 15th deadline, which the Governor will be proud to sign.”
