WashingtonToday, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D | Los Angeles County) issued the following statement regarding former U.S. Congressman Xavier Becerra’s confirmation as California’s new Attorney General.

I know he will make an exceptional Attorney General for California and I commend my former colleagues in the State Senate for confirming him.  At a time when cherished Californian values – cherished American values – are under attack, I know Xavier Becerra stands ready to protect our environment and to defend policies on everything from immigration to health care to public safety that make our state more vibrant, more inclusive and more just.  Governor Brown could not have made a better choice for Attorney General and I look forward to working with Xavier to move California – to move America – forward."
