George Runner Responds to New State Budget

Sacramento - Board of Equalization Vice Chair George Runner issued the following statement in response to the budget passed by Legislative Democrats today:

"I find it unbelievable that despite Governor Brown's calls for restraint, Legislative Democrats have crafted a budget that spends $2 billion more than what the governor proposed. This demonstrates that the majority party hasn't learned from past mistakes and is out of touch with what California taxpayers really want: value for their money."

George Runner represents more than nine million Californians as an elected member and Vice Chair of the State Board of Equalization. For more information, visit
