HARTFORD- Connecticut House Republicans recently placed Representative Christopher Davis (R-57) on four legislative committees.
Rep. Davis will continue serving on Finance, Revenue and Bonding Committee, as well as the Planning and Development Committee. Starting this year, Rep. Davis will serve on the Public Health Committee, as well as chair of the Internship Committee.
“Being assigned to serve on these important committees presents a great opportunity for our community,” Rep. Davis said. "This year, given the financial shape our state is in, and the number of other issues we face, it's important our community's voice is clearly heard during the committee process, and as a state representative, it's my duty to deliver that voice. I'm looking forward to working side-by-side with my colleagues towards finding the best possible solutions to all these issues - solutions that will better our community and our state.”
The Finance, Revenue and Bonding committee covers all issues related to finance, revenue, capital bonding, fees and taxation. The committee also has cognizance over 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 Planning and Development committee discusses all matters relating to local governments, housing, urban renewal, fire, sewer and metropolitan districts, home rule and planning and zoning; regional planning and development activities and the State Plan of Conservation and Development, and economic development programs impacting local governments.

Rep. Davis was also selected to serve as chair of the Legislative Internship Committee, having him oversee the legislative internship process.
Rep. Davis, representing the 57th district for his second term, said he will continue to work in the best interests of the people of the district and the state.
“It's an honor to serve the people of East Windsor and Ellington,” Rep. Davis said. “I've had the benefit to meet with so many different people through-out our district over the past few years, and I'll continue working to the best of my ability to make sure they are all properly represented in Hartford."
