“I am very excited to have been appointed as the chair of the new Senate Contracts and Procurement Committee,” said Senator Reichlin-Melnick. “Chairing this committee will allow me to advance legislation to make government more efficient and save taxpayer money, empower and uplift minority and women-owned businesses, and support organized labor to promote better wages and benefits for all working New Yorkers.”
Senator Reichlin-Melnick also announced that he has been named as a member of six other important Senate Committees: Consumer Protection, Education, Investigations & Government Operations, Local Government, Transportation, and Veterans, Homeland Security & Military Affairs.
“The committees that I have been named to represent several of the core issues that I focused on during my campaign, and will allow me to advance the agenda of the people of Rockland and Westchester counties at the state level,” said Senator Reichlin-Melnick. “I am very excited to get to work fighting for equity in education, transparency in government, local government efficiency, investing in our transportation infrastructure, supporting our veterans with health and job programs, and protecting consumers from price gouging during the pandemic.”
Senator Elijah Reichlin-Melnick represents the 38th State Senate District, which covers four towns in Rockland and Westchester.
