Jackson to Continue as Chairwoman of Senate Judiciary Committee

State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, D-Santa Barbara, announced that she will continue as chairwoman of the Senate Judiciary Committee under the leadership of new Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León.

De León announced his committee chair appointments Wednesday.

“I’m extremely honored to continue to chair this important committee,” Jackson said. “One of my priorities will continue to be ensuring that all Californians have access to justice in the wake of budget cuts that have decimated our court system. It’s important that we also continue to prioritize consumer protection and the privacy rights of Californians.”

The Senate Judiciary Committee’s focus includes legislation related to courts, consumer protection, privacy, equality and family law, among other issues.

Jackson has chaired the committee since January, when she was first named to the position under the leadership of former Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg.

Jackson represents the 19th Senate District, which includes all of Santa Barbara County and western Ventura County.

— Lisa Gardiner is the communications director for state Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
