New Florida Senate President Wilton Simpson, R-Spring Hill, announced committee assignments on Thursday.

Simpson announced the committee assignments in a memo sent out to senators.

“Over the last several weeks, I have enjoyed meeting with each of you to discuss the ways you feel you can best contribute to the Senate,” Simpson wrote. “I have worked to incorporate the interests stated on your subject matter preference forms, as well as your comments from our personal conversations. Many senators have a subject matter expertise gained by either professional excellence or prior legislative service. This experience is a tremendous benefit to the Senate. As you know, I also believe one of the benefits of a citizen legislature is the new approaches and differing points of view offered by individuals who have limited or no prior experience with a particular subject matter. I worked to balance these ideas in finalizing committee assignments. As we head toward the new year, I encourage all senators to utilize our outstanding professional staff in order to ensure you are up to speed in your assigned areas.”
