Manufacturing leader comments on Gov. Jerry Brown's State of the State Address

 Jan. 5, 2015 Sacramento, CA -- California Manufacturers & Technology Association (CMTA) president Dorothy Rothrock made the following statement regarding Gov. Jerry Brown's State of the State address and Inauguration:

"CMTA looks forward to working with the Governor and the Legislature to address the most pressing issues in the state, including managing state finances to keep taxes under control and making wise investments in infrastructure and education to support a growing economy.

As Gov. Brown said, our efforts to inspire technologies to reduce climate change emissions must do so without harming the vibrancy of our economy, so we must ensure that we control costs for manufacturers and not further increase the already highest electricity rates of any industrial state. Manufacturers will grow middle class jobs and fund facility expansions in California only if we strike the right balance in a statewide energy plan for these bold policies."
