(Victor Valley)– George Runner today issued the following statement in response to the Governor’s proposed budget revision:
“The Governor is on the right track in proposing a budget that has no new taxes, contains ongoing expenses, pays down debt and begins to address the state’s growing pension costs.
“I just wish the Governor would repeal the fire tax and stop the bullet train.
“In addition, California continues to rank as the worst state to do business in an annual survey of business leaders.
“The next test for the Governor will be how he deals with legislators who want to raise taxes and spend billions more. Will he hold the line?”
Elected in November 2010, George Runner represents more than nine million Californians as a member of the State Board of Equalization. For more information, visit www.boe.ca.gov/Runner.
