LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Chair Hilda L. Solis released the following statement after Governor Gavin Newsom announced the $100 billion dollar California Comeback Plan.
“Governor Gavin Newsom is again taking bold action with today’s announcement with his proposal to dedicate $100 billion for much needed stimulus checks to two-thirds of Californians.
The economy may be rebounding, but families up and down the state are still reeling from the last fifteen months of devastation. It’s only right to leverage the state’s impressive surplus to provide economic justice to those who need it most. This is a prime example of government working in favor of the people and will help residents remain safely at home, pay utilities and provide much needed basic necessities for our most vulnerable residents. We cannot revert back to the same unfair dynamic that predated the pandemic – we must put our words into action by fusing resources to achieve a more just society for all.”
