Hello my fellow Californians, it is great being with each and every one of you here on this special day.
Today marks a new chapter for all of us to work together and get things done for the people of California.
This legislative body leads the nation time and time again in enacting policies that are important to all Americans.
What we do here matters and I am extremely proud of what we have accomplished together.
It is an honor to serve as your President Pro Tempore of the California State Senate.
I thank you for this humbling opportunity.
