Wilk responds to Governor’s State of the State Address

SACRAMENTO – Assemblyman Scott Wilk, R-Santa Clarita, responded to Governor Jerry Brown’s 2014 State of the State address: 

“I applaud Governor Brown’s call to pay down the wall of debt.  Since California’s net worth is $127.2 billion, fiscal restraint must be a top priority before we see a true surplus.

Furthermore, Governor Brown needs to quit touting the ‘California comeback,’ the state’s revenue surge is due to a stellar year in the stock market and the $6 billion in new, higher, temporary taxes from Prop 30.  This means the increase in revenue is fleeting and Sacramento needs to invest more ‘surplus’ dollars into the rainy day fund in order to stabilize funding when the next economic downturn occurs.

Finally, the Governor was silent on an economic growth plan for California’s small businesses.  The only way Sacramento is going to overcome the wall of debt is by having private enterprise grow the economy.”

The 38th Assembly District encompasses Simi Valley, the northern section of the San Fernando Valley and most of the Santa Clarita Valley

Thanks Scott! Glad someone brought up the one-time tax revenue the state raked in.

Wilk's right. I hope we don't start depending on the revenue increases from Prop 30...that's risky and bad for the state.

What a load of crapola posted from bogus accounts by a bogus politician. How are the diversity bathroom committee coming? If you have a p-thing you use the boy's room. Duh. --edited.
