For immediate release:

SACRAMENTO – (Monday, June 14, 2020) – California State Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego) released the following statement today after the Legislature passed its 2021-22 State Budget:

“As we’re coming out of this pandemic and building back our economy, I’m proud to vote for a budget that makes historic investments to ensure we lead a just and equitable recovery for all Californians,” Assemblywoman Gonzalez said. “This budget prioritizes funds to tackle the growing diaper need across the state, including finally making all diapers tax-free, and offers real solutions to Californians who have struggled accessing their unemployment benefits. We’ve prevented cuts to critical public services, including In-Home Supportive Services and paid family leave, and made overdue investments in childcare programs and Medi-Cal to cover our most vulnerable seniors, regardless of immigration status.”
