SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A state Senate committee has approved Gov. Jerry Brown's choice for state librarian, after initial concerns about the appointee's qualifications.

Brown named Greg Lucas of Sacramento to the post in March, even though Lucas had never worked in the field had no formal training as a librarian.

Lucas is the son of former California Supreme Court Chief Justice Malcolm Lucas. He is married to Donna Lucas, who heads a politically connected Sacramento public relations agency and previously worked for several Republican governors.

Greg Lucas' worked as a journalist until he was appointed to the post. He said he has begun taking classes in library science from San Jose State University.

The Senate Rules Committee unanimously approved his appointment to the $143,000-a-year position Wednesday, sending it to the full Senate.
