Antonovich calls state budget "raw deal"

Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich issued the following statement on the announcement of a state budget deal today.

"What was missing was a comprehensive package of structural reforms including eliminating or consolidating overlapping departments and high-paying political commissions -- limiting stipends for members of necessary commissions to $150 per meeting. Also needed is a 2-year state budget, a part-time legislature and abolishing term limits.

Imposing one of the highest tax rates in the nation is a tax-and-spend orgy that further drives businesses, individuals and jobs out of state. It is also another raw deal for County and state taxpayers who are currently subsidizing excessive state spending, government growth, entitlement programs and more than $1 billion a year in benefits for illegal aliens in Los Angeles County."
