House Speaker-designate Matt Ritter and House Majority Leader Jason Rojas announced the appointment of Rep. Michael DiMassa (D- 116) as the Democratic leader of the bipartisan Legislative Regulation Review Committee.
“The Regulation Review committee needs leaders who will take the time to analyze and understand how regulations affect residents and businesses in Connecticut,” said Speaker designate Ritter. “I believe Rep. DiMassa is such a leader and will do a fantastic job in this role.”
“Rep. DiMassa displayed his detail-oriented approach as vice chair(man) of the Appropriations committee during the last session, and I am confident that this approach will serve him well as the Democratic head of this important committee,” said Majority Leader Rojas.
“I want to thank Speaker-designate Ritter and Majority Leader Rojas for choosing me to lead House Democrats on this committee,” said Rep. DiMassa. “This committee can work equally towards the goals of simplifying regulations in our state while simultaneously ensuring regulations which are in place or are under consideration protect our state’s residents.”
Rep. DiMassa was first elected to represent Connecticut’s 116th House district in 2016. During the previous session. Rep. DiMassa served on the Executive and Legislative Nominations Committee, the Judiciary Committee, and the Appropriations Committee as vice chairman.
