SACRAMENTO – Today, Senator Ling Ling Chang (R-Diamond Bar) participated in a community swearing-in ceremony before friends, family, community leaders, and elected officials on the campus of California State University, Fullerton. Senator Bob Huff (Ret.) administered the oath of office. Senator Chang was elected in June 2018 in a special recall election to serve residents living in California’s 29th Senate District which covers portions of Orange, Los Angeles, and San Bernardino counties.
“I’m honored to be sworn in today before my community – the community I grew up in,” said Senator Chang. “I’m humbled by the trust the voters have placed in me and I recognize the weight of that responsibility. Back in June, voters were clear that they want someone in Sacramento to protect taxpayers. As we are wrapping up this legislative session, I’m doing my part to fight for my constituents and to make sure there aren’t any additional tax increases.”
“Senator Chang knows her district, her constituents, and the issues that truly matter to them. I’m glad to be here today to administer the oath of office and to see so many of her constituents are here to support her. She’s a fighter and will continue to work for the residents of California’s 29th Senate District,” said Senator Huff.
Since taking office in June, Senator Chang introduced Senate Bill 991, which would reinstate funding for human trafficking victims in California. The state has the highest rate of human trafficking in the United States and the demand for victim services is rising. SB 991 includes a study to fully understand the scope of the problem and how the state can address the issue.
