Manufacturers commend Gov. Jerry Brown for fiscal responsibility and attention to state's economic vulnerability
Jan. 7, 2016 Sacramento, CA -- California Manufacturers & Technology Association president Dorothy Rothrock made the following statement today regarding Gov. Jerry Brown's proposed State Budget for 2016-17:
"CMTA appreciates that Gov. Brown's budget accounts for the likelihood of another economic recession and declining revenues. The recovery since the last recession has been uneven across the state with low California manufacturing investment rates and the sector's nearly flat employment growth. We urge lawmakers to adopt a budget that manages government spending and avoids tax increases in order to protect jobs and bring new middle class and high wage manufacturing jobs to the state."
