House Speaker Kirk Cox announced Wednesday a first round of committee assignment changes. A second batch may be coming soon, once Del. Jennifer Boysko — who won a special Senate election on Tuesday — gives up her House committee assignments and moves across the state capitol to the State Senate.
The State Senate is waiting on Bosyko's arrival before updating its committee assignments.
Committees and subcommittees play a key role in the legislative process, serving as a place to debate bills and deciding which bills advance and which proposals are killed.
Here are committee changes in the 100-member House of Delegates:
Terry Austin (R-Botetourt County)
Jeff Campbell (R-Smyth County)
Ronnie Campbell (R-Rockbridge County)
Eileen Filler-Corn (D-Fairfax County)
