Joseph N. Sanberg, Chair, Golden State Opportunity, issued the following statement regarding the Governor’s May Revise

5.11.17   For Immediate Release

Contact: Josh Fryday (415) 233-2222

“The earned income tax credit is by far the most effective way to bring economic security to hundreds of thousands of California families and children. While I applaud the Governor’s commitment to this proven program, in a time of increasing economic disparity we must double down and do even more. Thanks to the leadership of Assemblyman Ting and other champions, the State Legislature now has a chance to strengthen our economy by expanding the CalEITC to cover more workers of broader income levels– including those who are self-employed.”

Please see this recent letter from a broad range of service providers, pediatricians, and advocates in support of an expanded CalEITC.
