Bob Hertzberg, chair of the Senate Committee on Governance and Finance, today released the following statement upon his appointment today by Senate President Pro Tempore Kevin de León to the four additional Senate committees: Elections and Constitutional Amendments; Energy, Utilities and Communications; Judiciary; and Natural Resources and Water.

“I was honored Senate Pro Tem Kevin de León appointed me Dec. 17 to chair the Committee on Governance and Finance during this crucial time in our state’s financial history and I am now thrilled to work on these dynamic policy committees,” Hertzberg, D-Van Nuys, said. “Increasing election turnout, increased development of clean energy, a fair and impartial judiciary system, and protecting our natural resources while increasing our water supplies are worthy goals for California’s long term health and quality of life.”
