Sacramento – Senate Republican Leader Dennis Hollingsworth (R-Murrieta) issued a statement regarding Assembly Speaker Bass’ comment about reforming government.
Speaker Karen Bass: “Any attempt by the Governor and Senate Republicans to push for those right now would be immoral.”
“The Democrats need to get serious about solving the 24 billion dollar problem. The people of California clearly told us on May 19th that they expect us to do our jobs and solve this problem with no new taxes. Republicans, the Governor, the Treasurer and the Controller all agree we have a 24 billion dollar problem,” Hollingsworth said.
“One of the few protections the people have against unlimited taxes being placed on them is the 2/3 vote requirement. Reaching further into the pockets of California taxpayers to pay for bloated programs, continued fraud, abuse and wasteful spending is immoral.”
