Gallahan Rejects Unsustainable Assembly Budget

“This budget is incredibly irresponsible and will adjust the people and government of our state to spending levels we will be unable to sustain in the years to come. Worse yet, even with the budget being as large as it is, it still fails to prioritize working families and small businesses, allocating twice as much funding to an illegal immigrant stimulus program as it does to small business recovery. Rather than using this opportunity to stabilize our finances, this budget raises taxes by billions while increasing spending to levels that will require us to raise taxes even further or make painful choices about spending cuts that will hurt people throughout the state. I will not be supporting these budget bills, and I advise my colleagues to join me in rejecting this unsustainable and dangerous budget.”
