Leading Republican on Budget Pushes Governor to Focus on Job Creation and Education

Governor Jerry Brown yesterday took the oath of office as California’s 39th Governor. Current Vice Chair of the Senate Budget Committee, and former Nevada County State Senator Jim Nielsen, in responding to the Governor’s speech, says it is encouraging to hear the Governor focus on long-term debts and fiscal responsibility.

Nielsen says we cannot lose sight of the hundreds of billions of dollars in debts and the need to restrain spending. If the Legislature goes on a spending spree and does not address our long term debt, this ‘precarious’ budget will be disastrous.

Neilsen also says the Governor and legislative leaders must concentrate on creating jobs for the 1.4 million unemployed Californians, and investing in the state’s declining public education system. Focusing on jobs and education will bolster California’s economic recovery.
