A few of the changes to Committees that CBA frequently monitors include the following:
There were many other changes made in both committee chairmanship, vice chairmanship, or committee members for all committees. We will continue to monitor committee meetings for any potential issues that may arise during the session. In fact, we may find ourselves monitoring committees that we have not historically closely monitored if a bill is assigned to that respective committee.
