CCAEJ COMMENDS INVESTMENTS AND URGES FURTHER CONSIDERATIONS OF EQUITY IN THE GOVERNOR’S BUDGET
On Friday, the California Governor’s Office released the
annual budget for 2021, unveiling a $227 billion budget that highlights the
policy and financial priorities of the state. We recognize this budget is a step
in the right direction. However, the ongoing threat of the climate crisis,
environmental injustices, and the inequities in our current economy needs
bolder and swift action. We highlight key budget items that include a $15
billion spending package for economic relief, $1 billion for zero-emissions
infrastructure, and $325 million for AB 617.
