Senator Killion to Serve on Five Key Senate Committees

Senator Tom Killion (R-9) was recently appointed to serve on five Senate Committees for the remainder of the current legislative session.

Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati appointed Senator Killion to serve on the following standing committees for the remainder of the 2015-16 Session:

  • Banking & Insurance
  • Communications & Technology
  • Consumer Protection & Professional Licensure
  • State Government
  • Urban Affairs & Housing

“Senate committees provide a detailed process for legislation to be vetted and shaped before moving on to the full Senate,” Scarnati said. “I am confident that Senator Killion will offer fresh perspective and ideas as issues advance and policies are formed in each of the five committees to which he has been appointed.”

Killion said he will use his position on the committees to address key priorities like implementing proposals like reducing the size of the legislature, protecting seniors from fraud, and encouraging community development.

“This is a diverse group of committee assignments that cover many policy areas that have an acute impact on residents of the 9th Senatorial District,” Killion said. “Being assigned to these committees as a freshman legislator is an honor and I look forward to working on many of the issues that my constituents have told me are important to them.”
