Assemblyman Mike Morrell, R-Rancho Cucamonga, today issued a statement regarding Governor Jerry Brown’s proposed 2014-15. The governor announced his plan today. Redlands-Loma Linda Patch looked at what this means for our students and a story on what some of the budget entails.

Here's what Morrell had to say about the entire proposal:

“While the budget outlook may be improving, it cannot be an excuse to ratchet up and lock in new spending. Just a few years ago, liberals in Sacramento devoted more tax dollars to government programs when the economy was better. This led to record deficits and borrowing when our financial situation took a turn for the worse. We are still paying off that debt today. Lawmakers must do more to pay down this ‘wall of debt’ and set aside revenue in a rainy day fund so we don’t find ourselves in that situation again.

“For me, private sector job creation also remains a top budget priority. We must ensure that California has the trained workforce necessary to meet the demands of a global economy and that our state does a better job of encouraging employers to come back and create jobs here.”
