SACRAMENTO – Assemblyman Rocky Chavez (R-Oceanside) issued the following statement in response to the release of Governor Brown’s initial 2018-2019 budget proposal:
“Even in good times, California must be thoughtful in our priorities and plan for the future. I am pleased with the Governor’s proposal to fully fund the rainy-day reserve and putting $5 billion toward the emergency fund to assist wildfire victims.”
“California must continue building for our future, and I fully believe that starts with education. I am proud that the Local Control Funding Formula will be completely funded and am glad an online community college for working Californians has been made a priority.”
Education is important because it means jobs. Californians need to be able to make a living for their families no matter which educational path they have taken.
