The New Year has begun and the Legislature is back in session!
At the Capitol, we reconvened for the new legislative session on January 4th and it was great to catch up with both returning and newly elected members. This year, I was re-appointed as the Senate’s Chair of Transportation and Majority Whip and will serve on six committees. As Vice Chair of the California Latino Legislative Caucus, I had the honor of welcoming our members and celebrating a record high of thirty-five new Latino (a) members!
Recently, Governor Newsom unveiled his 2023-24 state budget proposal, and here are my thoughts on the proposal and the need to advance clean transportation equity investments to protect the health and future of our communities.
In the District, my team is getting ready for our robotics and coding workshop in Florence Firestone where I will present $2 million in funds for a Technology Career Incubator site to help bridge the digital divide for youth in South Central and Southeast Los Angeles.
With winter weather expected to continue, it’s important to stay informed and aware. Take some time to review winter weather resources to help keep you and your family safe.
Next month is Black History Month and we want to celebrate and uplift Black leaders making a difference in Senate District 33. If you know of extraordinary Black community leaders of distinction and service in your community, I want to know about them. Please submit your nominees by Wednesday, January 25, 2023.
