Statement: Chris Hoene on the Passage of Proposition 30

The California Budget Project released the following statement from Executive Director Chris Hoene in response to the passage of Proposition 30 at yesterday’s statewide election.

“Yesterday was a very good day for the idea of laying the groundwork for California’s future. With voters approving Proposition 30, our state has taken a major step forward in stabilizing the budget and reinvesting in education and other public systems and services that are essential to all Californians. The new revenues from Proposition 30, along with those from Proposition 39, position California to turn the corner on years of severe budget shortfalls and start rebuilding the foundations of a strong economy, healthy communities, and a high quality of life.”
