Manufacturers comment on Gov. Newsom's Proposed Budget

 Jan. 10, 2020 CMTA President Lance Hastings made the following statement today on Gov. Gavin Newsom's proposed 2020-2021 State Budget:

"Manufacturers appreciate Gov. Gavin Newsom's commitment to California's reserves and rainy day fund among the many spending priorities in our State Budget. With a growing skills challenge and the fast pace of innovation and technology in manufacturing, his $83 million to support apprenticeships and his support of 'earn and learn' opportunities are both big steps in the right direction. We also commend him for his recognition of the difficulties of starting a small business in California, manufacturing or otherwise, with a first-year exemption of the franchise tax."
