Posted online
Missouri Sen. Jay Wasson, R-Nixa, has been appointed to serve on four Senate committees: the Committee on Financial and Governmental Organizations and Elections; the Committee on Small Business, Insurance and Industry; the Committee on Transportation; and the Committee on Progress and Development.

Wasson is vice chairman for the Committee on Financial and Governmental Organizations and Elections and serves as a member for the other three committees, according to a Missouri Senate news release.

“These committee appointments will help us get to work on legislation that will move Missouri forward,” Wasson said in the release. “I look forward to getting started on the legislation that will affect our financial institutions, roads and bridges, small businesses, and other areas that will positively affect Missouri.”

The Committee on Financial and Governmental Organizations and Elections considers bills related to banks, savings and loan associations, and other financial institutions. It also works on legislation concerning state departments, boards, bureaus and agencies, as well as determining the effect of federal legislation on state agencies. Election legislation also is typically referred to the committee.

The Committee on Small Business, Insurance and Industry handles legislation related to small businesses and insurance, including life, accident, indemnity and other forms. It also works on bills related to labor management, fair employment standards, workers' compensation and state employment security.

The Committee on Transportation works with legislation concerning roads, highways, bridges, airports, railroads and port authorities. It also looks at matters related to motor vehicles, such as motor vehicle registration and drivers' licenses.

The Committee on Progress and Development is tasked with working on legislation related to the changing or maintenance of human welfare issues.

Senate committees will begin meeting as early as next week, the release said.[[In-content Ad]]
