Sen. Jim Beall’s Reaction to State of the State Address

January 24, 2013

SACRAMENTO -- “Gov. Brown laid out an ambitious plan today to guide California forward,’’ Sen. Jim Beall, D-San Jose, said today, “and I’m eager to learn more details about it, especially his proposals that affect the environment and how California implements the federal Affordable Care Act to meet our growing health needs. I agree with his drive to increase government efficiency, keep college tuition in line, repair California’s infrastructure, and nurture job creation.

“I like the Governor’s overall recipe but I wished he would have shared his thoughts on how California will address the social issues that affect our communities and continue to severely impact the budgets of our state, cities, and counties. A spoonful of empathy goes a long way.’’
