Berryhill Not Elated With New Budget

Sponsored by:

Sacramento, CA — In a conversation with KVML News 25th District Assemblyman Tom Berryhill readily admitted he is not ecstatic about California´s new fiscal budget.

“I share the relief of all Californians that the longest budget standoff in our history is over. While I certainly appreciate the fact that there are no tax increases in this budget, I could not in good conscience support the cuts to law enforcement which will directly affect my district. I promised my constituents from Day One that I would fight for their safety each and every day I´m here. The communities of my district are waging a war against methamphetamine and all the crime that goes along with it. This budget cuts vital funding (34%) from our rural law enforcement folks and I just can´t go there.”

The budget included cuts to the Small/Rural Sheriffs´ Program and the California Multi-Jurisdictional Methamphetamine Enforcement Team (CalMMET).
