CALETIC4ME STATEMENT ON THE GOVERNOR’S 2016-2017 STATE BUDGET PROPOSAL
SACRAMENTO, CA (January 7, 2016) _“Governor Brown’s ongoing support for a state earned income tax credit is good for families, communities, and our economy. The credit not only benefits the individuals and families who are eligible, it puts hundreds of millions of dollars into local economies across California. The boost in income provided by the credit means our state’s lowest-paid workers have more to put toward necessities like rent, child care, food for young children, and transportation to work. It’s a tremendous opportunity to improve the lives of over 600,000 hard-working Californians and their families.”
-Joseph N. Sanberg, CalEITC4Me Chair
