SACRAMENTO, CA (MPG) - Even with a $22 billion surplus, California Democrats passed Assembly Bill 91 which will raise $1.9 billion in new taxes on small businesses.

Senate Republican Leader Shannon Grove (R-Bakersfield) issued the following statement:

“On one hand, Democrats say they are providing a $220 million savings for small businesses, yet on the other, they are increasing taxes on small businesses by $1.9 billion dollars. The last thing Californians need is another tax increase especially when we have a $22 billion surplus. Small businesses need our help to keep their doors open and this will only hurt them,” said Senate Republican Leader Shannon Grove.

Senator Shannon Grove represents California's 16th Senate District.
