Assemblyman Vince Fong critical of 2020-21 State Budget
June 20, 2020
“Passing a budget that includes a $9 billion tax increase on struggling businesses and medical research for COVID-19 is simply tone-deaf. This is the worst possible time to burden businesses that are struggling to reopen and hire new workers. Making matters worse, Sacramento Democrats are rubbing salt into the wounds of California taxpayers by funding the mismanaged and costly High Speed Rail project even during a time of budget crisis. We should halt all new taxes and regulations in order to get back on track as quickly as possible for the millions of Californians who are struggling to find work.” –Assemblyman Vince Fong
