SACRAMENTO – Assembly Speaker Toni G. Atkins (D-San Diego) released the following statement regarding Senator Barbara Boxer’s announcement about her retirement in 2016:

“We owe a debt of gratitude to Barbara Boxer for her 33 years of service in the United States Congress. We will miss having such a strong, progressive leader representing the Golden State. From her passionate work addressing climate change, to her dogged determination to protect victims of sexual assault, Senator Boxer has always been – and I think always will be – a fierce advocate for environmental protections and women’s rights. Although she will retire from Capitol Hill in 2016, I am delighted to hear that she said she will continue to champion these important issues. We look forward to welcoming her back home full-time.”
