Governor's budget is prudent approach

Published: Friday, Jan. 17, 2014 - 4:10 pm

Re “Brown stresses a debt paydown” (Page A1, Jan. 9): I am encouraged that Gov. Jerry Brown is being fiscally responsible with our state funds. He deserves congratulations on his budget that addressed paying off our state debt, not incurring more. His action contracts with that of Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, D-Sacramento. Steinberg proposes to spend an additional $1 billion a year on a mandated transitional kindergarten program. Steinberg chooses to ignore the overall financial debt of California and, instead, proposes new programs with no thought on how they will be funded.
