 In an effort to protect and expand the military’s vital role in national security and California’s economy, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. established the Governor’s Military Council and appointed former Congresswoman and Under Secretary of State Ellen Tauscher as chair.

The council includes retired admirals and generals from the U.S. Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard, as well as the Adjutant General of the California National Guard.

The council’s bipartisan leadership from the state legislature, who were selected by Senate President pro Tem Darrell Steinberg and Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez, includes Senators Steve Knight (R- Antelope Valley) and Richard Roth (D-Riverside) and Assemblymembers Rocky Chávez (R-Oceanside) and Al Muratsuchi (D-Torrance). Business leaders with significant experience in the defense industry will also serve on the Council.

“It is an honor to be selected to serve on the Governor’s Military Council,” said Senator Knight.  “I represent a district that houses major players Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin and Boeing, and Plant 42, as well as Edwards Air Force Base.

“We are also home to several manufacturers and suppliers in military and defense production, research and development, and testing.  I am proud to serve on this council to represent the interests of this industry and my district.”

The council will convene for one year and draft specific recommendations to the Governor and Legislature.

Knight represents about half of the Santa Clarita Valley in the state Senate.
