Senator Katherine Clark has been named the new Senate Chair of the Joint Committee on Revenue. Senate President Therese Murray announced the decision to promote Senator Clark to chair the committee as she announced changes in her leadership team.
“I am excited to get to work in my new role on the Joint Committee on Revenue and very grateful for Senate President Therese Murray for the opportunity,” said Senator Clark. “This committee plays a vital role in creating jobs, investing in our communities and building a vibrant economy.”
“Senator Clark has come into the Senate and done a great job,” Senate President Therese Murray (D-Plymouth) said. “She is talented, passionate, hard-working and has never shied away from the tough issues. Just last year, she took on major pension reform legislation as Senate chair of the Joint Committee on Public Service. Under pressure from all sides of the issue, she listened and led everyone to an agreeable resolution that will save the Commonwealth billions of dollars. Now, in her new role as Senate chair of the Joint Committee on Revenue, I know Senator Clark will continue to bring people together and do great work for Massachusetts.”
The Joint Committee on Revenue considers legislation related to federal financial assistance, state fees and taxation.
