SACRAMENTO – On June 14th, 2021, Assemblywoman Megan Dahle (R-Bieber) issued the following statement regarding the passage of the spending framework for California’s proposed $267 billion budget:
“While this plan for state spending is just a rough outline, I am pleased to see prioritization of broadband and some support for businesses, which is essential to expediting our state’s recovery.
“However, once again I’m disappointed to see that not all schools are treated equally, and this budget would cut non-classroom based charter schools out of $3.3 billion in federal and state dollars for expanded learning time.
“It is also fiscally irresponsible to not prioritize backfilling the $7.8 billion borrowed from the Rainy Day Fund last year. We must do better to protect Californians in the event of the next inevitable economic downturn.”
Assemblywoman Megan Dahle represents the 1st Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes portions of Butte and Placer counties, along with Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, and Siskiyou counties.
