Saturday, June 27, 2015

Sacramento, CA –Assemblyman Jim Frazier (D – Oakley) has been appointed by Speaker Toni Atkins (D – San Diego) to chair the Assembly Transportation and Infrastructure Development Committee.

"I am honored that Speaker Atkins has appointed me to chair the Assembly Transportation and Infrastructure Development Committee, as a part of the special session called by Governor Brown last week.   I applaud the Governor and the Legislature for coming together and seeking a long-term sustainable funding solution for transportation, particularly his focus on highway maintenance and trade corridors.  I am also pleased that the Governor is specifically asking the Legislature for a plan that establishes clear performance objectives and the means to deliver transportation projects more quickly and efficiently.

I have been working for months with industry representatives on these issues, and I look forward to engaging in a very productive special session that will address California's most pressing transportation needs."
