Tuesday, January 19, 2016

SACRAMENTO – Senator Mike Morrell (R-Rancho Cucamonga) today announced that he has been appointed Vice-Chair of the Senate Committee on Energy, Utilities and Communications.

“California’s energy sector is the most innovative in the world,” said Morrell. “While we welcome these technological changes, we cannot lose sight of the fact that families and businesses here still pay more for energy than in many other parts of the country. I look forward to continuing to serve on the Energy Committee and in this new capacity as Vice-Chair as we confront the challenges facing our state.”

Morrell recently wrote an op-ed regarding state energy mandates, published in the Daily Bulletin.

Morrell will also continue to serve as Vice-Chair of the Senate Committee on Public Employment and Retirement and retain his membership on the Senate Committee on Banking and Financial Institutions.
