Two Senate Republicans Tapped for Key Infrastructure Committee 

By   /  June 30, 2023  /  No Comments


Sacramento, CA –Senator Shannon Grove (R-Bakersfield) and Senator Scott Wilk (R-Santa Clarita) have been appointed to the Senate Select Committee on Infrastructure Streamlining and Workforce Equity to hear a variety of issues, including CEQA reform which has long been advocated by Senate Republicans. The committee is scheduled to hold a hearing on Thursday, June 29.

California Senate Republicans remain eager to collaborate with the governor and our colleagues across the aisle to fix California with bipartisan solutions,” said Senate Minority Leader Brian W. Jones (R-San Diego). “I am encouraged by this bipartisan Select Committee, which will hopefully help streamline infrastructure permitting for the benefit of all Californians.”

Senator Grove, Vice Chair of the Senate Rules Committee, said, “From housing to water infrastructure, California is facing one manufactured crisis after another. I looking forward to addressing these serious issues on the Senate Select Committee.”

“As Vice Chair of the Problem Solvers Caucus, I am pleased to join this bipartisan committee to find common ground in order for us to move the needle for all Californians. As I’ve said in the past, good ideas don’t have party lines, and I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work for our citizens,” said Senator Wilk.

In May, Governor Newsom announced sweeping proposals to the problematic California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the purpose of the Select Committee is to hold an informational hearing to discuss issues from housing to water infrastructure.

The Republican appointments follow decades of efforts by Legislative Republicans on key infrastructure measures, including these CEQA reforms.
