May 23, 2020
Assemblyman Vince Fong (R-Kern County) issued the following statement in response to Governor Gavin Newsom’s May Revise for the 2020-21 Budget:
“In light of the massive revenue deficit in the upcoming fiscal year, Sacramento must get serious about making reductions in spending that have ramped up significantly over the last decade. In order to be responsible stewards of taxpayer dollars, we must immediately cut wasteful projects like High Speed Rail, and provide the financial stability we need to meet our core obligations.
At the same time, we must do everything possible to create a stable environment that allows struggling small businesses to grow and hire, which includes pausing rulemaking on new regulations and prohibiting the imposition of new taxes and fees.” –Assemblyman Vince Fong
Assemblyman Vince Fong represents the 34th Assembly District, encompassing most of Kern County including the communities of Bakersfield, Bear Valley Springs, China Lake, Frazier Park, Golden Hills, Inyokern, Lebec, Oildale, Ridgecrest, Taft and Tehachapi.
