Sen. Jim Beall's Reaction to Gov. Brown's State of the State Address
SACRAMENTO -- Senator Jim Beall, D-San Jose, chairman of the Senate Transportation and Housing Committee, issues this statement regarding Gov. Brown’s State of the State address:
“I really appreciate the Governor Brown’s support of SB 1. We are going to launch a strong campaign to fight off any repeal of SB 1. We need to keep the roads in good repair. It only makes the cost go up if we don’t repair our roads.
“The Governor let us know the policies that we all worked on the last several years that deal with the environment. He laid out the environmental future of California, which (he) distinguished from that of the United States President, who has gone backward on all the work that has helped the environment at the national level. The Governor is moving ahead with California’s environmental quality improvements that address air quality, water, land use, open space, and forests.’’
