Enjoy the "benefits" of one-party rule in the state. The "concerns" are only about delays in spending more of the taxpayer's money.

Little, if any, concern about poor financial management, unsustainable levels of spending, programs that incentivize taxpayer dependency, and creating a hostile regulatory/tax environment that incentivizes businesses and residents (sources of additional tax revenue) to leave. I can hardly wait for all of the "emergency" and/or "temporary" tax increases (as well as new "fees") from the state legislature that will be enacted to "fix" Newsom's budget proposal.
