California is home to nearly 40 million people, representing the most diverse state in the nation; however, our state budget process is entirely one-sided—only allowing input from one political party. As we recover and rebuild from a devastating pandemic, Californians expect better from our state government, which is why I voted NO on the shameful partisan budget deal pushed through Sacramento this year…

“I mean, this is unbelievable. What kind of a bill is this?” said Republican Assemblyman Steven Choi during Monday’s floor debate. “What kind of laws are we trying to enact by this body? This is intolerable.”

I do not want to live in a state where the color of my skin or my race or my sex or my national origin determines my qualifications for a position, a job or entering to a college. I came here to this country to get away from ideologies like that."  ~Assemblyman Steven Choi

This past week the governor issued and made public his budget for our great state, trying to address the economic recession that was caused by COVID-19 and the shutdown of almost every activity in California.
