Field of Schemes: Newsom & Capitol Dems Strike Out With Budget Deal

SACRAMENTO – Today, Assembly Republican Leader James Gallagher issued the following statement on the early action budget deal announced by Gov. Newsom and Democrat legislative leaders:

This deal is a swing and a miss from Democrats. California’s budget has major league problems and Newsom is proposing JV solutions. With a $73 billion deficit, this gimmicky agreement is not the homerun Gavin thinks it is. The emotional, real truth of this budget is visceral to the Californians who will pay the price for Newsom’s delusions and exaggerations.”
