- Simone Braithwaite
“I applaud the Governor’s proposed 2023 State Budget. While we need to acknowledge our softening economy, because of our prudent budget practices with record reserves, this draft $297 billion spending plan allows California to further invest in our future.
As Chair of the Assembly Education Budget subcommittee, I’m especially pleased to see our continued focus on expanding early education, funding TK-12 schools at record levels, and increasing access and affordability for higher education.
I am eager to dig into the Governor’s proposals and help craft a final budget plan that will continue to move California forward.”
