This week, the Senate formally announced new Committee membership for the 2021 Legislative Session. We are still awaiting Committee assignments for the House. All Senate Committee membership can be found here. Two of the committees that we closely follow during session in the Senate are the Banking & Financial Institutions and Judiciary Committee. Both Committees had notable changes to their membership, which are outlined below.
As part of our advocacy efforts, we will be reaching out to new Committee members for the committees that we closely follow in the coming weeks of the session. We encourage you as bankers to introduce yourselves to new Banking Committee members, especially if you live in their districts.
The new banking committee Chairman is Senator Matt Brass. Senator Brass is Tyler’s Senator as he lives in that district and Tyler has known him for years. Another notable announcement was the appointment of Senator Brain Strickland as Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Senator Strickland takes the helm from Senator Jesse Stone, who did not run for re-election.
