As the new 2007-08 legislative session began yesterday, State Senator George Runner (R-Antelope Valley) was again selected to Chair the Senate Republican Caucus and confirmed by the full State Senate.
“It’s an honor and privilege to once again be named Chair of the Senate Republican Caucus,” stated Senator George Runner. “During this legislative year, we will be tackling many important and difficult issues – health care, prison reform, the state’s structural deficit to name a few. We will be ready to bring to the table sensible reforms and creative solutions to address these important issues.”
“I will continue to be vigilant in protecting taxpayers’ rights, cutting waste in government, eliminating bureaucratic red tape for businesses to develop and flourish, and improving our economy.”
The Chair of the Senate Republican Caucus is part of the core leadership team and is charged with developing and setting the policy agenda and direction for the Senate Republicans.
Runner represents the Antelope Valley, Santa Clarita Valley, Victor Valley, a portion of San Fernando Valley, and portions of Ventura County.
