Last month, Governor Brown delivered his State of the State Address, in which he discussed several of California’s achievements in recent years and the challenges that lie ahead.
He highlighted a number of triumphs that the state should be proud of, including the growth in the availability of jobs, a surplus in the state budget, and an increase in the minimum wage.
In his closing remarks, he stated, “We still have too many struggling families, too much debt, and too many unknowns when it comes to our climate. Overcoming these challenges will test our vision, our discipline and our ability to persevere. But overcome them we will and as we do, we will build for the future, not steal from it.”
