Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez has just announced his 2007-08 appointments to Assembly committees. Following Speaker Nunez’ earlier selection of freshman Assemblymember Julia Brownley to chair the Budget Subcommittee #2 on Education Finance, Brownley has now been appointed to the Committees on Aging and Long-Term Care, Budget, Budget Subcommittee #3 on Resources, Education and Natural Resources.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled or honored by the Speaker to have the opportunity to serve on these committees,” Brownley said. “These issues have been my passion, and led me to run for the Assembly. The Budget Subcommittees on Education and Resources give me the chance to be hands-on with the Governor’s budget proposals for these two critical issues, item-by-item, line-by-line, and working to make the investments that are needed for the longer term. The Committee on Aging will be dealing with how California meets the challenges of a population that is living longer. And as a 12-year member of the Santa Monica/Malibu school board, I especially wanted the Education Committee. It’s a dream list of assignments, and perfect for the 41st Assembly District.”
