Senator Melissia Hurtado Releases Statement on May Revision

 

SACRAMENTO, CA – Today, State Senator Melissa Hurtado (D-Sanger) issued the following statement on the May Revision 2020-2021 budget proposal:  

Today’s announcement is a harsh glimpse of the economic challenges we are facing and will continue to face for years to come. The May Revision proposes cuts to essential programs that will impact us all. In anticipation of this, my team and I have been working diligently with our federal partners in the valley to ensure the southern Valley has a voice in any or all stimulus packages approved. Now more than ever we need to pivot our voices for support of federal funding to fund critical infrastructure programs in water, healthcare, public safety and workforce developments in the southern central valley.

In Sacramento, I have also worked to refine my legislative package to create solutions in our valley to address the lack of access to health care, clean water supply and jobs. These measures will be the key to the long term success of my district and California.     

While these economic times are changing lives as we know it, my commitment to the Valley remains the same. I will work with the leaders in our community to find bipartisan solutions to the problems this crisis has created.  By continuing to be united and solution driven, we will rise above. Our great Valley has a resilient spirit unlike any other and that is what makes us Valley Strong.
