Thursday, March 17, 2016

(Sacramento) – California State Assemblymember Marco Antonio Firebaugh passed away at the age of 39 ten years ago. Marking that occasion, Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego) and Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Paramount) both spoke on the Assembly Floor of the enduring impression Firebaugh made on the Assembly as a body, on various legislators personally, and on the millions of Californians he advocated for. During his tenure in the Assembly from 1998 to 2004, Firebaugh served as Majority Floor Leader and as chair of the California Legislative Latino Caucus.
