Who Gets the Gavel?

promoted by Rosi

The new Senate committee lineups are taking shape and I just got my hands on the list of committee chairmen/women. Some seem like a natural fit (Vitale, Scutari for ex.) while other appear wildly out of place given their backgrounds and leadership skills. But that’s just my take.

Anyway, follow me below the fold to learn who the Senate’s gavel-bearers will be for the next 2 years.

  • Community & Urban Affairs: Van Drew
  • Environment &Energy: Smith
  • Labor: Madden
  • Transportation: Sacco
  • Budget and Appropriations: Sarlo
  • Commerce: Nia Gill
  • Health, Human & Senior Services: Vitale
  • Economic Growth: Lesniak
  • Education: Ruiz
  • Higher Education: Cunningham
  • Law & Public Safety: Norcross
  • Judiciary: Vitale
  • Military & Veterans Affairs: Beach
