Key Assembly Committee Assignments Announced
January 31st, 2014
In case you missed it, key committee appointments were announced this week in the General Assembly. Most notably was the appointment of Assemblyman Gary Schaer of Passaic to chair the powerful and important Assembly Budget Committee. Assemblyman John Burzichelli of Paulsboro is the vice chair of the Committee. Assemblyman John McKeon is chair of the Assembly Judiciary Committee and Assemblyman Gordon Johnson is chair of the Assembly Commerce and Economic Growth Committee. Committee chair appointments are important because they control not only the legislation heard in committee but also the public testimony and discourse on the bills.
