Legislative Committee hearings are an important step in the legislative process. Committees review policy matters and proposed legislation in greater detail than the full legislative bodies meeting as a whole. Committee hearings allow legislators to consult with policy experts and community members when considering complex legislative issues. Committee members are appointed by the Assembly Speaker based on their expertise and experience with the subject matter. A great deal of a legislator’s work is done in committee. I am pleased to serve on several Assembly committees that directly affect issues particularly important to the Westside of Los Angeles.
