Thursday, June 2, 2022

Senate Budget Vice Chair Senator Jim Nielsen, R-Red Bluff, issued the following statement today in response to the Senate and Assembly Democrat budget deal that was negotiated without Republican lawmakers’ input.

“California’s Democrat lawmakers have gone off the cliff. They have absolutely corrupted the budget process. They have silenced the voices of the nine million citizens who Republican senators represent by arrogantly refusing to involve us in crafting a budget. It’s despicable.”
