BLOCK AUTHORS RESOLUTION TO PROTECT SAN DIEGO JOBS AND OPPOSE AUTOMATIC MILITARY CUTS TO REGION; REDUCTIONS A ‘BODY BLOW’ TO ECONOMY

 
August 14, 2012 (Sacramento) —Assemblymember Marty Block (AD-78) today introduced Assembly Joint Resolution 46 urging the President and Congress to adopt an alternative spending plan to sequestration – automatic federal budget cuts of $1.2 trillion over 10 years scheduled to begin January 2013 because Congress has not achieved its budget targets.           
 
“This measure is a plea to Congress for reason before it places the federal budget on automatic pilot, causing additional economic uncertainty and job loss in the San Diego region and across the nation,” Block said. “Congress would strike another body blow to our economic recovery if it allows sequestration to occur.”
