The previously distinct Transportation Committee has been merged into the new Environment, Energy & Transportation Committee, while the Banking, Business & Insurance Committee will expand its scope to include matters related to technology and the Housing Committee will expand its scope to include land use.
“These changes reflect how intertwined these issues are with one another,” Sokola said. “As we continue to make record investments in our roads and bridges, we need to be ever mindful of how our transportation network impacts Delaware’s fragile ecosystems and open spaces. Likewise, technology is now a central component of any commercial operation and land use is inextricably linked with housing.”
Following an historic election in which voters expanded Democrats’ supermajority in the Delaware Senate, most Senate committees have also been adjusted to reflect a similar majority.
Committees and committee assignments will become official when the General Assembly reconvenes on January 10, 2023.
The full slate and membership of each Senate committee is listed below:
Banking, Business, Insurance & Technology
Corrections & Public Safety
Elections & Government Affairs
Environment, Energy & Transportation
Health & Social Services
Housing & Land Use
Rules & Ethics
Legislative Oversight & Sunset
