SAN FRANCISCO–Today, Amy Everitt, president of Golden State Opportunity, issued the following statement after the California Legislature’s passage of the 2021-22 state budget bill:

“The $15 million in the California Legislature’s budget for CalEITC outreach, education and tax assistance will help Californian’s hardworking, low-income families and workers put more money in their pockets. GSO thanks our champions – Assemblymembers Phil Ting, Wendy Carillo, and Senators Nancy Skinner and Anna Caballero – who know every dollar counts for Californians. We will continue our work with our partners across the state to connect hard-to-reach communities with resources that help them build a better future. We urge Governor Newsom to help all communities come back and support this critical funding.”
