Nielsen praises governor's proposed budget

The north state's Sen. Jim Nielsen, the state Senate's budget vice chairman, is praising Gov. Jerry Brown's budget proposal as "prudent."

Here is his statement:

“The Governor should be applauded for proposing a prudent budget.

“With over $5 billion in surplus money, there is no need for new or extended taxes.

“We can continue to pay down the state’s debt, increase the state’s savings account for a rainy day and fund existing programs that help California’s most vulnerable, particularly services for people with developmental disabilities.”

I'm working on a follow-up story on how the proposal would impact agencies that work with agriculture. Watch for it at
