CALIPATRIA — Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia and Senator Ben Hueso held a community meeting Friday, May 13, at the Calipatria Community Center in response to Governor Gavin Newsom’s $300.6 billion budget revision for May and more specifically to the proposed investments in lithium headed to the county. Governor Newsom announced earlier in the day that Imperial County would benefit from over $200 million from his revisions to the 2022-2023 state budget due to a record surplus of $97.5 million.
