SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Ash Kalra (D-San Jose) provided the following statement in response to the announcement of Governor Gavin Newsom’s 2019-20 Proposed Budget:

“What the Governor introduced today is a budget that prioritizes the values of California; one of inclusivity, education, value of work and the working class, and opportunity for all. I am particularly appreciative of Governor Newsom’s attention to pay down the state’s debt, help address local school district pension obligations, and ensure that we do not overlook the state’s unfunded liabilities.
