What California REALLY Needs
By Senator Mark Wyland (R-Carlsbad)

100 days past the constitutional deadline, Republican leaders crafted a budget that includes no new taxes, incentives for job growth and pension and regulatory reform. However, I believe we need even stronger measures to contain future spending and encourage more business investment and job creation. That’s why I voted ‘NO’ on this year’s budget.

To put an end to California’s spending addiction, I’ve authored legislation that would cap government spending. In fact, not only should we cap spending, but we should also reduce current spending by auditing every program, like I’ve proposed in additional legislation.

I am determined that California will no longer engage in the shameful spending like the $5 million of unnecessary vehicles purchased on the last day of the fiscal year or the $69 million of welfare money that was withdrawn from ATMs in Las Vegas, Hawaii and cruise ships. I am outraged by this waste of our tax dollars, and will fight to end these assaults on YOUR tax dollars.

No-Tax Budget Compromise Moves in Right Direction
By Assemblyman Martin Garrick 

The Legislature has ended the longest budget stalemate ever early by passing a no-tax spending plan.  While it is very frustrating that it has taken 100 days into the new fiscal year to come to a resolution, the final compromise ultimately helps navigate our state through a difficult recession.  

This budget doesn’t raise taxes or further stall our economic recovery.  It brings state spending closer to living within its means.  It also includes budget and pension reforms that will help put California on the road toward longer-term fiscal stability. In the end, Republicans were able to protect taxpayers and job creators in this budget.  Republicans were able to preserve valuable job creation incentives that will help California companies invest in research and development, create jobs in our state, and keep us competitive with our neighbors. 

This budget helps our state to live within its means. It reduces overspending by $7.5 billion, up significantly from the $1.9 billion in cuts proposed by Democrats in May.  It also maintains education funding at last year’s levels, while including a modest increase in per pupil spending. 

Another major achievement is that this budget includes a strong rainy day fund and critically needed reform to rein in bloated pensions for state workers.  This budget is a victory since it doesn’t raise taxes or kills jobs.  It also takes significant steps toward greater fiscal stability in the future.
