SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Rob Bonta (D-Oakland) issued the following statement in response to Governor Gavin Newsom’s May Revision of his proposed budget:

“A budget is far more than numbers on a spreadsheet; it’s a reflection of our values and our priorities as Californians. That’s why I’m truly pleased to see Governor Newsom dedicate so much of his revised budget plan to helping uplift the most vulnerable people in our state-- all while maintaining vital protections against a future recession by growing our rainy day reserves to record levels.”

The bills would give localities more flexibility to stabilize rental prices, protect tenants across the state from large rent increases, prevent unfair evictions, and collect data about the California rental market.
