PARADISE, Calif. – The California State Assembly has passed a state budget - one that rejects Gov. Gavin Newsom's funding cut to the Paradise Irrigation District.

California lawmakers approved a state spending plan to address an estimated $54.3 billion budget shortfall. But the plan rejects the cut to the P.I.D. as well as many of the governor's other proposed cuts to public education and health care.

The hope is that Congress will send the state more money by Oct. 1, to cover the shortfall.

"Water will keep us building and keep everything going as planned," Paul Blanyer, a Paradise resident said. "We got all these investors, investing millions of dollars, we got people who have bought multiple pieces of property but without the water, we can’t build, we need the water to keep rebuilding."

While lawmakers approved the budget, the governor has the power to approve or veto the plan.

Legislative leaders will continue negotiating with the governor to reach an agreement before the start of the new fiscal year, July 1.
