Senate Rules Committee Confirmation Hearing Transcripts
Listed here are documents containing hearing transcripts and other background materials related to the confirmation process conducted by the Senate Rules Committee for gubernatorial appointees to certain state offices. These documents were issued in print until July 2009 (and are available from the California State Library's Government Publications Section), but are only available electronically as of August 2009. Since the Rules Committee is not currently making these transcripts available on their webpage, they have given the State Library permission to mount these documents on our site in order to facilitate their use by researchers.
Bibliographic records for these documents may be found in the State Library's catalog. In order to identify the hearing for a particular individual or office, one should perform a subject search in the catalog for that individual's name (e.g. "Kernan, Scott M.") or the agency or office to which they are being appointed (e.g. "California. Dept. of Corrections and Rehabilitation – Officials and employees – Selection and appointment").
