I’m proud to serve on a number of very influential committees. Every Bill has its start as a “good idea” which eventually gels into a black-and-white piece of proposed legislation. Once that’s done the Bill comes through a Senate Committee to be scrubbed, amended, and either approved or disapproved. Before a Bill can ever make it to the floor for a vote and the ability to become a law it must go through its respective committee process.
