Common Sense Kids Action CEO and Founder Jim Steyer issued the following statement today in response to the release of Governor Brown's proposed California state budget for 2016-17:

"We are glad to see that the continued economic recovery once again allows the California state budget to make noteworthy investments in our children and schools. We are intrigued by the Administration's Early Education Block Grant proposal and look forward to the promised stakeholder conversations to come. As the Right Start Commission will address in its upcoming report, California needs to move towards an integrated system that is easier for parents to navigate, streamlines delivery, and improves quality. We are encouraged that the Governor's proposal appears to be consistent with this approach and look forward to hearing more details."
