“While this budget proposal is a great starting point, we still have a lot of work to do on the transportation front,” Frazier, D-Oakley, said in a press release. “Funding shovel-ready projects would significantly improve safety and reduce greenhouse gas emissions on our roads and highways, while creating job opportunities for many Californians.”
The state assemblyman, who represents the 11th district that includes most of Solano County, also said he’ll continue to advocate restoring funding after devastating cuts to courts, public safety and the special needs population in California.
Assemblywoman Mariko Yamada, D-Davis, who represents the 4th Assembly District that includes part of Solano County, praised “the continued restraint and responsibility reflected in Gov. Brown’s budget proposals.”
“Attention to our state hospitals and developmental centers, along with additional resources to strengthen protections for some of our state’s most vulnerable residents, is also encouraging, she said in a press release.
State Senator Lois Wolk, D-Davis, who represents the 3rd district that includes Solano County, said, “This is a budget for a recovering economy.”
“The governor’s budget pays off more than $11 billion in debt and builds the state’s reserve while reinvesting in public schools and the courts, both of which have experienced significant budget cuts in recent years,” she said in a press release. “This budget strengthens the safety net for the state’s neediest and most vulnerable residents, with proposals including a three-year pilot child-care program for low-income parents seeking employment.”
