Key Sponsor Reacts to Prop. 25 Passage
The California Federation of Teachers (CFT) was a key sponsor of Prop. 25. CFT President Marty Hittelman made the following statement: "The passage of Proposition 25 means that the Californian Legislature will not have an easy excuse for passing a late budget that harms California's future.
By voting in favor of majority rule, California's voters have taken an important step forward in restoring democracy to the budget process. No longer will a few legislators hold up the entire budget process until special favors are finally granted in exchange for their votes.
The majority budget vote will not solve all the problems we face in Sacramento. Even as priorities shift to address critical needs, it will not be enough to turn California around until added resources directed toward support of public education and other important social services are found. But we have taken an historic first step toward a democratic process.
California's future looks a little better after what happened today."
