In this week's Capitol Comment, state Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff, R-Diamond Bar, gives praise in general to Gov. Jerry Brown for his recent State of the State address.
Huff said he appreciated Brown's remarks about fiscal discipline in the budget process, putting an end to boom and bust budget cycles, and freezing tuition at the CSU and UC campuses. Brown also discussed California Environmental Quality Act reform and other proposed measure that Republicans couple support, Huff added.
However, Huff said he questions whether Brown's rhetoric matches his actions. The governor talks of fiscal discipline, but has proposed to increase spending by $3 billion in the next fiscal year, he said.
Huff represents the 29th Senate District covering portions of Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino Counties. He can be followed on Twitter @bobhuff99.
