Seven-term state Rep. Livvy Floren (R-149) was named to her third term as Ranking Member of the legislature’s General Bonding Sub-Committee by House Republican Leader Larry Cafero.
The General Bonding Sub-Committee is responsible for all matters relating to capital bonding. For the 2013-2015 legislative session, Rep. Floren will be the highest appointed position of the Republican Party on the subcommittee.
Her appointment was announced following her swearing in by Secretary of State Denise Merrill on Wednesday afternoon in the State House Chamber in Hartford.
“My main concerns moving forward are to keep debt under control and bond for the greater good. I would also like to continue along the path of keeping our seniors in their homes," Floren said in a prepared statement.
Floren, who represents Greenwich and a part of Stamford, also was assigned to the legislature's Finance, Revenue and Bonding Committee and Aging Committee.
The Finance, Revenue, and Bonding Committee oversees all matters relating to finance, revenue, capital bonding, fees and taxation. The committee also is responsible for employer contributions for unemployment compensation and all matters relating to the Department of Revenue Services and the revenue aspects of the Division of Special Revenue. The Aging Committee handles all matters relating to senior citizens.
