Becker Chosen To Be New Vice-Chair Of The Bay Area Legislative Caucus For 2023-24

(Sacramento) – The Bay Area Legislative Caucus (BALC) has chosen Senator Josh Becker (D-San Mateo) as its new vice-chairman to help lead the caucus for the 2023-24 legislative session.

“The Bay Area is connected by more than just BART, Caltrain, and AC Transit, we’re connected by issues such as housing, homelessness, transportation, and environmental protection that affect us all and benefit from a regional, problem-solving approach,” said Becker.  “It’s really an honor to be chosen by the other 25 members of BALC to help lead it over for the next two years and I’m really looking forward to seeing what we can accomplish for the region.”

The 26-member BALC works together to organize and support Bay Area priorities in the Legislature, both to ensure the region receives parity and equity when it comes to state funding and focus on issues unique and important to the region.

The 9 Senate members of the BALC are Josh Becker (Vice-Chair), Dave Cortese, Bill Dodd, Steve Glazer, John Laird, Mike McGuire, Nancy Skinner, Aisha Wahab, and Scott Wiener.

The 17 Assembly members of the BALC are Phil Ting (Chairman), Cecilia Aguiar-Curry, Rebecca Bauer-Kahan, Marc Berman, Mia Bonta, Damon Connolly, Tim Grayson, Ash Kalra, Alex Lee, Evan Low, Liz Ortega, Diane Papan, Gail Pellerin, Robert Rivas, Buffy Wicks, Lori Wilson, and Jim Wood.

First elected in 2020, Senator Becker represents the 13th Senate District covering portions of Santa Clara and San Mateo counties and includes the cities of Atherton, Belmont, Half Moon Bay, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Menlo Park, Millbrae, Mountain View, Pacifica, Palo Alto, Redwood City, San Bruno, San Carlos, San Mateo, South San Francisco, and Woodside.
