SACRAMENTO - Today, Governor Gavin Newsom unveiled his $288 billion May Revision Proposal, while looking to address a $37.9 billion shortfall identified by his Administration at the start of the year. His proposed budget proposes an array of serious reductions, delays, and other actions to bring the budget back to balance this year and next year, and proposals affect every area of state government, including broad reductions in state administrative costs and substantial reductions to one-time augmentations of recent years. However, it still holds an expected deficit of $27.6 billion and pulls from our reserves.  

Assemblywoman Wendy Carrillo (D- Los Angeles) issued the following statement in response to the Governor’s May Revision Proposal:

"Governor Newsom’s May Revision proposal unmistakably indicates that our state's budget deficit remains serious. Since January, the legislature has been working on addressing the $37.9 billion budget shortfall and made progress in reducing it to $27.6 billion, due to an ‘early action’ budget packet in April. It is clear we must take additional measures. I commend the Governor for his ongoing commitment in tackling our state’s budget deficit and for improving our budget prospects for future years.

I look forward to working with Speaker Robert Rivas and Budget Chair Jesse Gabriel on Assembly priorities, preserving district budget allocations, working on strategic and economically sound investments to tackle California’s homelessness crisis, and protecting vital safety net programs that support our most vulnerable communities. Retail theft, public safety, access to mental health resources and avoiding significant reductions and delays that could affect workers and climate reduction efforts remain top of mind. There is a lot of work to be done.”
