Speaker Atkins Appoints Committee Chairs

Most Democrats have a committee chair

by Brian Leubitz

Below the fold you will find the full list of committee chairs. All in all, given the big number of committees, most Democratic legislators who aren’t in leadership get a chair. I think the exceptions were Lorena Gonzalez, who is the vice-chair of the Local Government committee with Republican Brian Maienschein getting the chair, and Nora Campos, who is on rules. And Rob Bonta has two chairs, keeping PERS and getting the Health Committee this year.
