Digital News Report – Senate Republican Leader-elect Bob Dutton (R-Rancho Cucamonga) responds to the revised 2010-2011 budget released by Governor Schwarzenegger.
“The ‘May Miracle’ many in this Legislature were hoping for didn’t materialize. Accordingly the decisions we must make in the coming weeks are going to be even more difficult than if we had acted sooner. The state’s fiscal problems are a direct result of the Legislature’s failure to help the small business community of California that creates the bulk of jobs in the private sector. Until we get serious about job creation in the private sector, California’s fiscal problems will continue. We won’t restore California’s economy by trying to tax our way out of our budget problems. It’s time to focus on solutions that work.”
