Berman Reacts to Newsom’s First State of the State Address

Tuesday, February 12, 2019

SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Marc Berman (D-Palo Alto) released the following statement in response to Governor Newsom’s first State of the State address today:

“I applaud Governor Newsom for delivering an ambitious first State of the State, unveiling a clear vision for the future. While he touched upon California's exceptionalism, the Governor focused on the extraordinary challenges that we still face, speaking to the everyday issues that matter to residents across our great state. I look forward to working with Governor Newsom and my colleagues in the Legislature to break down barriers to building more housing, ensure every child goes to a school where they gain the skills they need to succeed, increase access to clean drinking water throughout California, including in the coastal communities of the 24th District, and create an economic system where people who work full time make enough money to support their families.”
