SACRAMENTO—Assemblymember Monique Limón (D – Santa Barbara) issued the following statement on the proposed Budget presented today by Governor Gavin Newsom.

I am encouraged by the investments made in the Governor’s 2019-20 “California for All” budget proposal and the projected increase in reserves to $18.5 billion dollars combined in 2019-20.  As Vice Chair of the Legislative Women’s Caucus, I especially applaud his investments in “cradle to career,” K-12, and expanded paid family leave. Governor Newsom’s commitment to invest in Alzheimer’s research, is especially meaningful, as I am one of thousands of Californians who has a family member that is directly impacted by Alzheimer’s.
