SACRAMENTO, CA — Assemblymember Jesse Gabriel (D — San Fernando Valley) issued the following statement in response to Governor Newsom’s proposed 2020-2021 Budget:
“I applaud Governor Newsom’s commitment to addressing homelessness and look forward to working with him to provide additional state resources to address this urgent crisis. At the same time, we must include metrics to ensure real accountability, swift action, and demonstrated results from local governments that receive state funding. The current situation and lack of progress in many cities and counties is simply unacceptable. California residents, taxpayers, businesses, and those suffering on our streets deserve better.”
