Public Statement
February 10, 2009

Dear Senator Steinberg:

As you seek a solution to California's budget crisis, the League of Women Voters of California strongly urges you not to propose a "hard spending cap" to the voters. Imposing such a limit on future state budgets would do nothing to solve the current situation, but it would mean that future budgets could not repair the damage now being done to needed state services, let alone meet future needs.
