Friends, families, fellow Californians:

Once again, it’s one of life’s greatest honors to stand before you as the son of a single immigrant mother, now the President of our nation’s finest legislative body.  

Of course, the power within this chamber has never come from one individual – or even 40.  It’s about the 39 million lives outside this building.  Those who live, work and raise families, striving for a safe, healthy, hopeful future -- in a state admired around the world for inventing the future.
