SACRAMENTO – Assemblyman Scott Wilk, R-SantaClarita, responded to the release of Governor Brown’s 2013-14 revised budget proposal today, saying the Governor’s budget clearly demonstrates the need to put students first.

The May Revision includes a projected $2.8 billion dollar surplus, $70 billion for all K-12 Education programs and $25.4 billion for Higher Education programs.

“I’m pleased with Governor Brown commitment to education funding, said Wilk. “During the Prop 30 campaign the governor promised to hold the line on tuition hikes for college students. I think hard working families and students need to know their elected leaders will do what they say they are going to do.”

Wilk continued, “Although Governor Brown touts a surplus he has budget assumptions that do not match reality. In addition to a true balanced budget we need to have real transparency as we put together the budget over the next month,” said Wilk.
