CMTA 'May Revise' statement: Focus on middle class job creation to support the State Budget

 May 11, 2017 California Manufacturers & Technology Association president Dorothy Rothrock made the following statement today regarding Gov. Jerry Brown's "May Revise" State Budget proposal for 2017-18:

"A healthy state budget depends on a growing economy and new middle class jobs to provide adequate state revenues. Governor Brown's caution in his revised budget reflects the uncertain nature of these revenues in the event of economic downturns. This highlights the importance of improving the business climate by removing barriers to manufacturing investment and funding workforce development programs to protect us from these downside risks so we can pay for our state priorities."
