Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government


Assembly Speaker-elect Toni Atkins, D-San Diego, will take the leadership baton from current Speaker John A. Pérez, D-Los Angeles, in May.

Democrats unified behind Atkins in January and officially voted to make her their next leader in March. At the time the timeline for the transition remained unclear.

Democrats now have determined that Atkins will replace Pérez, who is termed out at the end of 2014, on May 12 - a full month before the Legislature must pass a budget without forfeiting pay. Atkins would also steer the Assembly through the May 30 deadline to pass Assembly bills and send them to the Senate.
