Message from the Senate President pro Tem

Photo of Senate President pro Tem Kevin de LeónThank you for visiting the California Senate’s website. An engaged citizenry is the bedrock of a thriving democracy. To facilitate that participation, we hope you’ll visit our new live-streaming option where for the first time you can view all regularly scheduled hearings within the Capitol from your own computer, tablet or smart phone. We recognize not everyone can get to Sacramento to participate in the legislative process, so we'll bring those hearings to you.
