Assemblymember Gray Issues Statement on Governor Brown's 2018 State of the State Address
SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Adam C. Gray (D – Merced) released the following statement following Governor Brown’s State of the State Address:
“When Governor Brown took office in 2011, California was reeling from an economic downturn that resulted in a $27 billion deficit. California now enjoys a multi-billion dollar surplus. I continue to support and applaud the Governor’s fiscal prudence.”
“I appreciate the Governor’s commitment to address California’s aging infrastructure,” continued Gray. “However, funding roads, water, rail and housing is only half the battle. We must make the necessary reforms to ensure that these projects can be built on time and on budget.”
“Many serious issues remain to be addressed, including fulfilling our promise to build water storage infrastructure, reducing the state’s unfunded debt liabilities, and expanding access to healthcare in rural regions. I look forward to partnering with the Governor on these and other issues that affect California’s families.”
Today’s State of the State address was the sixteenth and final address for Governor Brown. More information is available at www.asmdc.org/gray.
