The State Assembly Rules Committee began Senator Abel Maldonado's confirmation hearings for lieutenant governor at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.
If he makes it through the hearings, the nomination will go to the Senate and Assembly for a vote.
The governor nominated Republican for lieutenant governor in November 2009 after former Lieutenant Governor John Garamendi was elected to Congress.
