(Sacramento) – Assemblymember Rob Bonta (D-Oakland), the first Filipino American elected to the California Legislature, held a joint press conference with Senate President pro Tempore Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento) and Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez (D-Los Angeles) to encourage Californians to support Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda relief efforts. "As my Filipino brothers and sisters struggle to survive, locate their loved ones, and heal after this tragedy, I am encouraged that our state leaders, along with the rest of the country and world, are moved with empathy, concern, and a desire to help, and are turning those feelings into tremendous relief efforts," Assemblymember Bonta said.
