The Assembly Republican Caucus today elected Brian Dahle (R-Bieber) as their new leader. Senator Jim Nielsen (R-Tehama) issued the following congratulatory statement:
“I congratulate Assemblyman Dahle on his election as Assembly Republican Leader.
“It is great to have a fellow North State representative serving as the Assembly Republican Leader.
“I look forward to continuing to work with Leader Dahle to advance the issues and policies important to the people of California.”
The Leadership Shake-up came after Assembly Republican Leader Mayes backed an extension of the state’s landmark cap-and-trade climate program.
