As Brown often does, he first took on his critics:
“It occurred to me that these critics – who have long recited our state’s decline – perhaps have nothing to say in the face of California’s comeback – except, ‘please, don’t report it.’ Well, I’m going to report it, and what a comeback it is: A million new jobs since 2010, a budgetary surplus in the billions and a minimum wage rising to $10 an hour!”
Brown stressed again the need for “fiscal restraint” from the Legislature. But then he went on to discuss several big state spending projects:
“We’re on our way to a million electric vehicles and we’re building the nation’s only high-speed rail. We’re expanding health care coverage to millions more.”
