Speaker John Perez on Enterprise Zones

Assembly Speaker John Perez is holding a series of town hall style meetings around the State to engage the public in the budget process. During these meetings the audience is asked to vote on various spending and revenue proposals. At the April 24 meeting in Fresno, that particular audience voted for billions of dollars in increased spending and even many more billions of dollars in tax increases. It was clear that most of the attendees viewed themselves as on the receiving end of spending and not the tax increases.

These town hall meetings are being posted online here.

Kelly Trevino, the Enterprise Zone manager for the City of Fresno asked the Speaker for his views on the EZ program. Here is the video clip of that exchange:
