They began their fellowships in late October and will continue through September with Hanin placed with state Senator Benjamin Allen, D-Santa Monica; and Marks with state Senator Shannon Grove, R- Bakersfield.

Fellows work as full-time staff members in the program, participating in policymaking and learning first-hand about state government.
