Governor Weighs in Against Proposition 92

The CRP opposes Prop 92, and today the Governor announced he is opposing the measure as well. Here's the text of the Governor's announcement:

Governor Schwarzenegger Opposes Proposition 92

As California faces a $14 billion state budget deficit and continues to struggle with a chronically out of balance budget system, Governor Schwarzenegger today announced his opposition to Proposition 92. The Governor made the following statement regarding this decision:

"California's budget system is dysfunctional and in serious need of reform. Year after year funding for education, health care, public safety and other important programs is threatened because of fluctuating tax revenue and auto-pilot spending. Proposition 92 will only worsen this problem. This measure would constitutionally lock in nearly a billion in new mandated spending over the next three years without any way to pay for it.

"California's community colleges provide an important path for many of our students to quality, affordable higher education. As Governor, I have made keeping California's community college fees the lowest in the nation a priority and I am committed to continuing to strengthen our state's education system."
