SACRAMENTO: Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar) issued the following statement in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day:

“Dr. King was a tireless advocate for justice and equality who challenged America to live up to its founding principles. His courage in the face of adversity, and the message behind his teachings, resonates with me and many Californians while reminding us there is still much work to do in the fight for equality.”

“We should honor Dr. King’s legacy by continuing to fight for better educational opportunities for all students, no matter their background.  Dr. King was a firm believer in the power of education, and I believe ensuring all our children receive a quality education is the greatest good we can provide.”
