As the Senator representing the 10th State Senate District, it is my honor to represent constituents from many diverse ethnic backgrounds, including a significant number of Hindu Americans. I am proud to sponsor this resolution designating October 2013 as California Hindu American Awareness and Appreciation Month. It is certainly appropriate that we celebrate the many contributions made by Hindu Americans in our state and nation. I look forward to my colleagues in the Legislature supporting this resolution. --Ellen Corbett, CA State Senate Majority Leader
