Senate Dems Announce Committee Chairs
Shortly after the state Senate GOP released their list, Senate Democratic Minority Leader Jay Costa Jr. announced the new minority chairs for the 2019-2020 session.
And here are the Senate Democratic Minority Chairs. Each freshman senator has a committee (due to number of chairs and size of caucus) as well as a few doubling up. Also includes five women at heads of committee, though there is no seniority requirement here. pic.twitter.com/7rsxMFvsdE
