Briefly…at the Legislative Committee

The first meeting for 2017 of the Chamber’s Legislative Affairs Committee took place on Wednesday. We met Darla Dyson representing newly elected State Senator Anthony Portantino and Savannah Moore from newly elected LA County Supervisor Kathryn Barger’s office. Faith Lee, from Assemblymember Chris Holden’s office, distributed nomination forms for the 41st Assembly District’s 2017 Woman of Distinction. She distributed some materials from the Supervisor, including the pledge she made to the residents of the Fifth District and the recently passed motion to expand the number of Mental Evaluation Teams from 10 to 23.
