Crouch Introduces Ethics Reform

February 13, 2018

Assemblyman Clifford W. Crouch (R-Bainbridge) presented a rules reform measure to his colleagues today in the Assembly that would prevent a misbalance in representation on standing committees. The rule change would require that the number of majority members on a standing committee be in the same ratio as the number of Majority members to Minority members in the entire chamber, preventing the Majority from having an unreasonable amount of representation on standing committees.

“Today I presented a rules reform measure to the Assembly Majority that would ensure that both the Majority and Minority have a fair amount of control and influence on standing committees,” said Crouch. “Unfortunately, the Majority did not share my concerns about the need for change on the matter. We see far too many bills get trapped in committees due to an unfair ratio of members on standing committees, this needs to change.”
