Speaker Rendon Statement on Appointment of Xavier Becerra as Attorney General

SACRAMENTO — California State Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Paramount) issued the following statement after Gov. Jerry Brown announced his appointment of Rep. Xavier Becerra as California Attorney General:

“With his long record of public service in the Attorney General’s office, the Assembly, and Congress, Xavier Becerra clearly has the experience to step into this vital role. Just as important, he has great tenacity and he respects the rights of all Californians—much-needed qualities for an Attorney General given the troubling times ahead. I applaud Governor Brown for making this bold and inspired choice.”
