Pages of History: California fiscal crisis back in ’39

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, September 1939.

Possible registration of state relief warrants, no matter how distasteful that may be, is certainly a very definite indication that the pruning shears must be used in our state government if we are to balance incoming revenue with outgoing, said Sen. Collier while on a visit to Del Norte County over the weekend.

“Expenses in California have been climbing all out of proportion to the general increase in population that the state has experienced. It certainly is true that we can not go back now to a 1925 or a 1930 budget, but we can return to sensibility in state governmental spending,” Collier said.

“We have certainly built up a house of cards that sooner or later will crash unless we stop building on the unstable foundation of a mortgaged future,” Collier further stated.
