SACRAMENTO— Assembly Speaker Toni G. Atkins (D-San Diego) released the following statement regarding the election of Anthony Rendon (D-Paramount) as the next Speaker of the state Assembly:

“From working together on the water bond and other vital issues, to helping represent California at the recent COP 21 Climate Change conference in Paris, I have seen up close, and time and again, what a thoughtful and effective leader Anthony Rendon is. I’m delighted the Assembly has made the excellent decision today to ratify Assembly Democrats’ choice of Mr. Rendon to serve as the next Speaker. Over the next two months we will continue the smooth transition process that we began last September. I know Speaker Rendon will move assertively right out of the gate, and will lead the Assembly through a successful and meaningful 2016 session.”
