“Thanks to an unexpected budget surplus, we have the means to help some of these troubled small businesses and nonprofits. This historic auxiliary bill will help organizations pay their bills, save jobs and keep their doors open.
“Small businesses and nonprofits – and the thousands of local workers who depend on them – are the backbone of the Central Coast economy. We must continue to do everything we can to ensure their survival. I am proud to help draft this bill and to ask the governor to sign it immediately. “
