SACRAMENTO – Assemblyman Brian Jones, R-Santee, was named Vice Chairman of the Assembly Business, Professions and Consumer Protections Committee today by Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez.
“I am honored to have been named Vice Chair of the Business and Professions Committee,” Jones said. “Businesses have been fleeing California in droves, and my goal as Vice Chair will be to bring a strong business voice to the committee hearings.”

Assemblyman Jones has also been assigned as a member of Assembly Governmental Organization, Utilities and Commerce, and Legislative Ethics Committees.
