Senate Reorganization

With the seating of Senator Lewis, the Senate is again evenly divided but now with Democrat Lt. Governor Northam casting the tie breaking vote.  As a result, the Senate Democrats took control of the Senate today and, among other things, re-shuffled Committee membership and chairmanships. 

The new makeup of the Senate Education and Health Committee is as follows: Lucas (Chair), Saslaw, Howell, Martin, Newman, Edwards, Locke, Barker, Miller, Smith, McWaters, Black, Carrico, Puller and Favola.
