TRENTON – Following the reorganization of the 215th legislature, members of the Assembly were given their respective committee assignments. Assemblywoman Annette Quijano (D-Union) has once again been selected to act as Chair of the Assembly Homeland Security and State Preparedness Committee and Vice-Chair of the Assembly Judiciary Committee. She has also been chosen to be a member of the Assembly Housing and Local Government Committee.
“I am honored to maintain the Chair of the Homeland Security and State Preparedness Committee,” said Quijano. “I am looking forward to continuing to be proactive when it comes to keeping the residents of New Jersey informed, prepared, and safe.”
Assembly Committee meetings will begin at the end of January and continue into February. Over the coming weeks, each committee’s chair will select the bills that his or her respective committee will take into consideration for passage.
“I am excited to begin collaborating with the other members of the Assembly Housing and Local Government Committee to set an agenda for the coming legislative session,” continued Quijano. “I know that many of the bills that fall under this committee’s purview are important to the residents of my district, and I will actively seek ideas for legislation from them.”
