WASHINGTON, D.C. - Rep. Howard P. "Buck" McKeon (R-Santa Clarita) issued the following statement on the results of Tuesday's California Special Election:

"California voters made a clear statement last night that they want a government that is fiscally responsible that maintains a balanced budget, without shouldering taxpayers with an additional burden. They want it nationally and, clearly, at the state level.

"The state is facing a $21 billion deficit and voters are asking the right questions: how this happened and what is the best way to fix the problem. They've also made it clear they won't be forced into hasty votes that would allocate millions in additional taxpayer funds to ‘bailout' the legislature. As it stands now, California residents pay some of the highest taxes in the entire country.

"Unfortunately, Californians have lost faith in how Sacramento is governing, but I think this outstanding victory for taxpayers and defeat for the state reveals a real opportunity to make some tough decisions and core changes in the state's fiscal policy and fiscal restraint."
