This year California faces its most challenging budget in recent memory, with a shortfall of $3.3 billion through June, and an estimated $16 billion deficit separating revenue and spending in 2008-09. Closing that gap will undoubtedly mean painful cuts to state services for all of us. As your Assemblymember, this year I'll be offering and voting on difficult budgeting decisions, working to balance the needs of our state with the belt tightening needed to stay fiscally responsible. You can help me set priorities and make these tough choices by clicking http://democrats.assembly.ca.gov/members/a42/ to fill out my "California's Fiscal Emergency Questionnaire."
I look forward to receiving your input.
