Upcoming Pandemic Emergency Response Hearings

October 02, 2020

Dear neighbor,

As chair of the Special Committee on Pandemic Emergency Response, I will be hosting several oversight hearings over the next few months on our state’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the past we have addressed key issues such as testing and contact tracing efforts, skilled nursing facility concerns and the impact of COVID-19 at the California border region. Moving forward, we will be conducting oversight hearings on the state’s management of workplace health and safety, and the inequities that exist in our education system including distance-learning disparities for our most vulnerable students and lack of internet access. 

These hearings are coming up soon. I highly recommend you explore our Special Committee on Pandemic Emergency Response  website to get familiar with the hearing process, view agendas and download background information about each of the topics we will be tackling. To stream the hearing live on the day of the hearing, please visit the senate website.

With the COVID-19 pandemic greatly impacting our everyday lives, my work as Chair continues beyond the legislative session for the people of California and Senate District 33, and I want to invite you to have a front seat at the table. I hope you will join me for all of our hearings. If there is anything you would like to share or if you have any questions or concerns as we launch for the season, please contact my office at (562) 256-7921.

P.S. If you haven’t yet completed your census, there is still time. Act now. To complete the census visit my2020census.gov, call 844-330-2020 or mail back your completed questionnaire.


All my best,
