Lt. Gov. Dewhurst Appoints Senate Committees

Although Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst had already named Senate committee chairs before the session started, on Friday he completed the process by announcing the committee members.

Senators who had not been named as a committee chair were all named as a committee vice-chair. Three new senators were named as vice-chairs of some very significant committees: Larry Taylor (R-Friendswood) Business and Commerce, Kelly Hancock,(R-North Richland Hills) Economic Development, and Ken Paxton (R-McKinney) Transportation. The Education committee includes members who are more conservative than those serving last session, including new senators Campbell (R-New Braunfels), Paxton and Taylor.

So where does your senator serve?  Here’s the list.
