Senate Democratic Leader Jay Costa yesterday appointed the Democratic chairs for the state’s standing committee. Among them are three senators from the Northeast.
“As we begin a new session, Senate Democrats are poised to move forward on plans to create jobs, improve education and make government more effective and efficient even while dealing with budget difficulties,” Costa said in a release. “I am pleased to make these appointments and I look forward to working with my colleagues because they will do quality work.”
