Statement on Governor’s Proposed 2024-25 Budget

For immediate release:

SACRAMENTO—Assemblymember Evan Low (D-Silicon Valley) released the following statement in response to the release of Governor Gavin Newsom’s Proposed 2024-25 California Budget:

“I will work with my legislative colleagues and Governor Newsom to address California’s short-term budget deficit through creative solutions that prioritize people first, including protecting public education for our children, environmental protection, health and human services, roads and infrastructure investments, and our public’s safety. California should not risk losing our global competitiveness, nor overcorrect at the expense of our most vulnerable, because California’s best days are still ahead of us, and we must continue to make meaningful progress on our biggest challenges including the spiraling cost-of-living, rising crime in our communities, global climate change, and the homelessness crisis. There was a lot of great news in his presentation, so I thank Governor Newsom and his team for their creative and innovative work, and I look forward to carefully reviewing the specifics of the full budget proposal.
