96069 Seventeen Committees to Handle
General Assembly Business
by Jerry L. Van Marter
LOUISVILLE, Ky.--General Assembly stated clerk the Rev. James E. Andrews
has announced that 17 committees will handle the business of the 208th
General Assembly (1996), June 29-July 6 in Albuquerque.
Andrews announced the committee structure Feb. 14, following the Feb.
8-10 meeting of the Committee on the Office of the General Assembly.
The number of Assembly committees is one less than last year.
However, an additional committee -- to nominate a stated clerk -- will have
to be created if nominations for the office are made from the floor of the
Assembly on June 29. In that event, a committee of ten commissioners will
be drawn from the existing Assembly committees.
A random assignment of General Assembly commissioners to the Assembly
committees will be made by computer shortly after General Assembly
moderator Marj Carpenter makes her appointments of chairs and vice-chairs
of the committees on March 13.
