SACRAMENTO, CA – Senator Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) released this statement in response to Governor Jerry Brown’s final State of the State Address.
“California is America’s greatest success story. Governor Brown and the Legislature deserve credit for balancing the budget, raising wages, expanding healthcare and setting the conditions for economic recovery. Today unemployment and the number of uninsured Californians are at their lowest levels in 40 years.”
“Governor Brown is right: ‘The bolder path is still our way forward.’
