Lt. Governor David Dewhurst has announced the appointment of Senate standing committees for the 79th Texas legislature. A list of committees with links to members is available on the capitol website. The Texas Senate website also has a list of committees with useful links. However, the Senate website has not yet been updated to reflect today's appointments.
Members of the Texas HIV/AIDS community will be most interested in the work of the Senate Committees on Finance and Health & Human Services. However, other legislation of interest will be referred to other committees, so it will be helpful to bookmark the entire lists of committees as well.
