Friday, January 20, 2017

SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Jose Medina (D-Riverside), Chair of the Assembly Higher Education Committee, was appointed to several influential Assembly Committees by Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Paramount). Medina will serve on the Transportation Committee, Budget Committee, and Budget Subcommittee on Education Finance. His additional Committee assignments include Accountability and Administrative Review as well as Arts, Entertainment, Sports, Tourism, and Internet Media.

“I am honored to serve on the Committees appointed to me by the Speaker,” said Medina. “As Chair of the Higher Education Committee and a former educator, I will be better able to address issues of funding and affordability by also serving on the Budget Subcommittee on Education Finance. Likewise, as an Inland Empire resident, serving on the Transportation Committee will allow me to focus on issues regarding infrastructure, maintenance, and public transit, all of particular concern to our communities.”

Assemblymember Medina proudly represents California’s 61st Assembly District, which consists of Riverside, Moreno Valley, and Perris.
