Sacramento – Assemblymember Patrick O’Donnell (D-Long Beach) was appointed yesterday as Chairman to the Select Committee on Ports. He issued the following statement:
“My district is home to the Port of Los Angeles and the Port of Long Beach. These two ports are the nation’s busiest cargo hubs that together handle almost half of U.S. imports, and generate over one million regional jobs. The creation of a Select Committee on Ports has been a specific priority of mine and is a direct acknowledgement of their importance to not only my region, but California as a whole.
