COPIED FROM HER WEB PAGE:

Assemblywoman Melissa A. Melendez (R-Lake Elsinore) released the following statement today in response to Governor Brown’s May Revision of his 2017-18 budget proposal:
“This budget is a perfect Democrat con job.  After forcing a multi-billion dollar, potentially illegal, tax increase on all Californians, with the promise of better roads, Governor Brown and his fellow Democrats are already diverting funding to their own pet projects.  In this budget proposal, they are diverting 30 percent of funding from the gas tax to non-road related projects like building parks and job training for felons. That’s money from the very gas tax the Democrats promised would go solely to fixing our decrepit roads and providing relief for traffic congestion. I hope all Californians will take action and start demanding accountability with their tax dollars from the Democrats who run this state.”

Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez represents the 67th Assembly District, which includes the communities of Lake Elsinore, Canyon Lake, Murrieta, Menifee, Wildomar and a portion of Hemet. It also includes the Riverside County unincorporated areas of Lake Mathews, Good Hope, Nuevo, and Winchester.
