LaMalfa Responds to Budget Trigger Cuts

Legislative Republicans predicted $13b deficit, trigger cuts
Posted: 12/14/2011

(SACRAMENTO) - Senator Doug LaMalfa (R – Richvale) issued a statement today regarding Governor Jerry Brown’s announcement that nearly $1 billion in mid-year trigger cuts will take effect on in the first months of 2012. The cuts follow the passage of a rushed, fiscally unsound budget by Democrats anxious to receive paychecks and perks in the wake of Proposition 25.

“Legislative Democrats fabricated fantasy revenue numbers to kick out an on-time budget,” said LaMalfa. “The majority knew all along that the money would never materialize and that mid-year trigger cuts would be inevitable. Now, these mid-year cuts have become a political tool to help Democrats pass their tax increase plans.”

In July, legislative Republicans offered budget proposals that would have made no cuts to K-12 education. They also released an analysis that predicted the nearly $13 billion deficit if the Democratic budget passed.

"The only way to finally solve our budgeting problem is to eliminate the regulations destroying jobs and businesses,” LaMalfa stated. “When government agents are shaking down California businesses, families, and farms on a daily basis there is little doubt our budget problems will persist. California cannot regulate every aspect of business and life while expecting growth in the private sector. Californians are can-do people and will succeed if only government would get out of their way. Raising taxes will only hurt our struggling economy and hurt hard working Californian families.”


Senator Doug LaMalfa is a lifelong farmer representing the fourth Senate District including Shasta, Tehama, Butte, Colusa, Glenn, Siskiyou, Sutter, Del Norte, Placer, Trinity, Yuba and Nevada counties.
