SACRAMENTO – Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez (D-Los Angeles) today announced he has appointed Assemblymember Anthony Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge) to the California Film Commission.

“California’s entertainment industry — a major source of jobs and an important part of our history and culture — has had no greater champion than Anthony Portantino,” Pérez said. “I know through his service on the California Film Commission Assemblymember Portantino will continue to provide strong leadership to help keep film production and jobs here in California where they belong.”
