FAIRFIELD — Sen. Lois Wolk, D-Davis, has been named to the state committee that deals with energy and communication.
The announcement came Tuesday from Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg that Wolk will serve on the Senate Energy, Utilities and Communications Committee.
Wolk has introduced multiple pieces of legislation on these topics recently and said the committee will spend time focusing on renewable energy policy as well as energy efficiency. Wolk will continue her membership on the Senate’s standing committees on Agriculture, Health, and Natural Resources and Water.
She also will return as chairwoman of the Senate’s Governance and Finance Committee, which works on policy related to state and local taxes; budget and government reform; land use and other local government issues.
