For immediate release:

SACRAMENTO, CA – Today Assemblymember Damon Connolly (D-San Rafael) was appointed to the Assembly Committee on Natural Resources, whose jurisdiction encompasses air quality, climate change, energy efficiency, renewable energy, the California Environmental Quality Act, coastal protection, forestry, land conservation, oil spills, solid waste and recycling. 

“As a passionate environmentalist and climate advocate, I am looking forward to joining my legislative colleagues who are already doing great work in the Assembly Natural Resources Committee,” said Assemblymember Damon Connolly. “As a member of this committee, I am committed to advocating for sustainable practices of environmental stewardship to help ensure that our policies align with California’s clean energy goals and environmental resilience.”

“I am thrilled to have Assemblymember Damon Connolly join the Assembly Committee on Natural Resources,” said Assemblymember Isaac Bryan (D-Los Angeles), chair of the Assembly Natural Resources Committee. “Assemblymember Connolly’s leadership on environmental and climate action grows from his decades of work on these issues for his North Bay and Marin constituents–I’m grateful that Speaker Rivas has added his voice to the powerful and thoughtful group of colleagues who serve on the committee.”

Assemblymember Connolly, who chairs the Assembly Select Committee on Wildfire Prevention, sits on the Assembly Committee on Environmental Safety and Toxic Materials and is the vice chair of the Joint Legislative Committee on Climate Change Policies, is well-versed in tackling climate issues through the legislative process.

Assemblymember Connolly is looking forward to collaborating with legislative colleagues and constituents alike through his appointment to the Assembly Natural Resources Committee to evaluate and vote on legislation that will impact California’s natural resources for generations to come.
