SACRAMENTO, CA – Today, Assemblywoman Blanca E. Rubio (D-Baldwin Park) released the following statement regarding Governor Jerry Brown’s 2018-19 state budget proposal.
“I applaud the Governor for his efforts to continue paying down California’s debt given the rise of our financial obligations over the past decade. The Governor continues to be fiscally conservative while building up our state reserves,” said Rubio. “However, we must continue to promote economic justice by investing further in our most vulnerable communities, including survivors of domestic violence abuse.”
Together with the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence, Assemblywoman Rubio and Senator Jim Beall (D-San Jose) pledged to work with colleagues in both houses, the Administration, and advocates to increase the funding for survivors and family members trying to escape their violent environment.
The 48th Assembly District is comprised of the cities of Azusa, Baldwin Park, Bradbury, City of Industry, Covina, Duarte, El Monte, Glendora, Irwindale, Monrovia, West Covina, and the San Gabriel Valley unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County, including Bassett, Charter Oak, Citrus, East Arcadia, Ramona, Valinda and West La Puente.
