Sen. John Fonfara, D-Hartford, will take over the co-chairmanship of the Finance, Revenue and Bonding Committee in January, one of 10 committee leadership changes announced today by the state Senate Democratic majority.
The joint House-Senate committees on Aging, Banks, Children, Energy, Finance, Government Administration and Elections, Housing, Human Services, Labor, and Regulations Review all will have new co-chairs.
Fonfara succeeds Eileen Daily, who did not seek re-election. He is now the vice chairman of the committee, which oversees tax laws. Andrea Stillman of New London will oversee the bonding subcommittee, while Gary LeBeau of East Hartford will handle the transportation bonding subcommittee.
Andres Ayala of Bridgeport, one of three incoming freshmen Democrats, will oversee two committees, Aging and Regulations Review. He is now a House member serving on Regulations Review.
