As State Budget deadline approaches, manufacturers urge a responsible budget with convincing structural and regulatory reforms
March 7, 2011 Sacramento, CA -- The California Manufacturers & Technology Association president Jack Stewart made the following statement today regarding state budget solutions and structural reforms:
"For many years, California has been lagging the country in high wage manufacturing jobs and declining in new manufacturing growth. One result has been lower tax revenues. If we hope to finally solve the budget crisis, it is essential that California's elected leaders not only find short term solutions to balance the state's budget, but that they also enact convincing structural and regulatory reforms to revitalize California's manufacturing investment climate. We urge the Governor and legislators to keep working on a comprehensive solution. Our state budget ultimately hinges on a robust and growing economy."
