Senate Committees

Senator Muriel McQueen Ferguson, the first female Speaker of the Senate, once called committees the “heart and soul of the Senate.” Senate committees have a long history of important contribution to the development of public policy through serious, expert studies, as well as the review and amendment of legislation. Please see the links below to view my committee work since being named to the Senate in August 2009.
