(Sacramento) - Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez (D-Los Angeles) and the Assembly Democrats are delivering on the promise to have an open, transparent budget process this year. Assembly Democrats have hosted a series of budget forums throughout the state that were webcast live on the internet. About two thousand people attended the first six forums held in Palm Springs, Fresno, Reseda, San Diego, Orange County and Sacramento. Dozens of committee and sub-committee hearings on the budget are also being held. Assembly Democrats believe an open, inclusive dialogue with as many Californians as possible will help produce a final spending plan that reflects the values of Californians.
