Senate President Mike Miller has announced the committee composition for four of the Standing Committees for the 2019 Legislative Session. The announcement also includes Chairs of the joint committees, and the Chair and Vice-Chair appointments for Senate Rules and Executive Nominations. From the Senate President’s announcement,
Committee compositions are determined with an intent to balance a variety of issues including geography, race, gender, knowledge areas, and other considerations. I am proud that our Senate leadership reflects the diversity of our state, with women composing half of our standing committee chairs, and with people of color representing one-third of our Senate committee leadership. All committees and their membership represent the best of our incoming Senate class and I am confident they will serve the interests of all Marylanders.
