SACRAMENTO – California Attorney General Xavier Becerra issued the following statement in response to Governor Brown’s 2018-2019 state budget proposal: 

“Governor Brown has shown his commitment to maintaining a prudent and balanced budget, while investing in programs that reflect California’s values. The Department of Justice has developed a strong track record of efficiently and effectively fighting for the people of California, from defending the civil rights of our most vulnerable populations to preserving the natural resources that make California a great place to live, work, and raise a family. I look forward to working with Governor Brown and the Legislature to ensure the hardworking men and women of the Department of Justice can do even more to promote public safety, enforce California’s laws, and defend the state’s interests against federal overreach.”
