Senator Connors will once again serve on the Senate Community and Urban Affairs Committee and the Senate Military and Veterans’ Affairs Committee. Assemblyman Rumpf will continue serving on the Assembly Health Committee and the Assembly Regulatory Oversight, Reform and Federal Relations Committee. Assemblywoman Gove will be returning to both the Assembly Military and Veterans’ Affairs Committee as well as the Assembly Higher Education Committee. The Assemblywoman will be taking on a new assignment by joining the newly formed Assembly Senior Services Committee.
Assemblyman Rumpf and Assemblywoman Gove were once again named as policy co-chairs to the Assembly Republican caucus. The 9th District Legislators issued the following statement upon receiving their Committee assignments.
“As always, our intent is to select committee assignments that place our Delegation in positions to more effectively represent our constituents’ interests. Serving as policy co-chairs will allow Assemblyman Rumpf and Assemblywoman Gove to provide our constituents with a stronger voice in fighting the extreme and failing policies that Trenton can’t help itself from passing despite the obvious negative impact on taxpayers and businesses.
“The 9th Legislative District is home to large veterans and senior populations whom we want to see receive the best care and access to services. Protecting our senior communities from overreaching common interest community legislation is always a priority for our Delegation.
“Accordingly, Senator Connors will continue to serve on the Senate Community and Urban Affairs Committee so as to place our Delegation in a more effective position to fight off poorly-conceived and costly bureaucratic regulations that Trenton will attempt to impose on residents, municipalities, and businesses.
“With large veteran and senior populations, it’s not surprising that health care accessibility and affordability consistently rank among the most pressing issues for our constituency. To build upon the efforts our Delegation has untaken to serve these populations, Assemblyman Rumpf will return to the Assembly Health Committee with the same commitment to improve the quality of and access to health care services in the state through comprehensive and fiscally responsible policies.
“Assemblywoman Gove is thrilled to serve on the newly established Assembly Senior Services Committee. Previously, both health and senior services issues fell under a single Assembly committee. This is a significant committee assignment in view of not only our District’s large senior population, but the opportunity for a more focused forum to shape public policy to meet emerging challenges impacting seniors including, but not limited to, housing and health care.
