Sen. Grove named to six committees

Sen. Grove named to six  committeesState Sen. Shannon Grove, first female veteran elected to the California legislature, announced the following committee appointments going into the next session.

Grove will serve as the vice chair for the Committee on Veteran Affairs and vice chair on the Committee on Transportation. She will also serve as a member on standing committees for health, housing, insurance and rules.

“Californians suffer from sky-rocketing housing, gas and insurance costs,” said Grove. “However, the needs of rural residents differ from the rest of the state.

“Serving on these committees will allow me to be a voice for my constituency. It is time that hard-working citizens can finally afford to live and work in the Golden State.”

Grove represents California’s 16th Senate District, which includes Ridgecrest.
