Sacramento, CA – Senator Patricia Bates (R-Laguna Niguel) issued the following statement today regarding Governor Gavin Newsom’s 2021-22 budget proposal:

“I welcome the Governor’s budget efforts to strengthen public health, speed up vaccine distribution, and reopen our schools, which cannot come soon enough for millions of kids who are falling further behind in their educational and social development.

“It is also encouraging to see the Governor make small businesses and their workers a priority after forcing many of them to shut down. I hope he works with the Legislature to enact the bipartisan ‘Keep California Working Act’ that I have co-authored, as well as provide protection for businesses, schools, and other entities against unjustified COVID-19 lawsuits.

“The pandemic has caused a lot of crises that require a response from state government. We must help Californians in need and a top priority that must immediately be addressed is the Employment Development Department, whose failures are well known. Unemployed Californians have had to go through weeks of hell to receive their benefits even as prisoners and con artists were able to quickly obtain billions of dollars. The Governor and his Administration must urgently engage at an even higher level to solve the problems at EDD. The problems have gone on for way too long and caused unnecessary hardship for millions of Californians.

“The final budget that the Governor signs this year must fund essential services without making new spending promises we cannot keep.”

Senator Patricia Bates (R-Laguna Niguel) represents the 36th Senate District in the California Legislature, which covers South Orange County, North San Diego County, and Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton.
