Ting Presents 2022-23 State Budget On Assembly Floor

SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Phil Ting (D-San Francisco), Chair of the Assembly Budget Committee, released the following statement on the Legislature sending SB 154 to the Governor:

“Once again, we had a tremendous opportunity with a robust surplus to address the critical needs of California’s most vulnerable by providing more funding for families, small businesses, CalWORKS and SSI recipients, students, and child care. This spending plan prioritizes necessary infrastructure improvements for affordable housing, transportation and transit, school facilities, student housing projects. I’m proud of the budget that we put together, which focuses on lifting up individuals who have been left behind from the last two years of economic growth and provides smart investments that will benefit Californians for years to come.”
