GREENWICH, Conn. – Connecticut House Republicans have assigned three state representatives serving Greenwich to their legislative committees for the 2015 session.
State Representatives Livvy Floren (R-149), Fred Camillo (R-151) and Representative-Elect Mike Bocchino (R-150) each will serve on three legislative committees.
Floren and Camillo will retain their titles as assistant Republican leaders to House Republican Leader Themis Klarides.
Floren will work with committees on Insurance and Finance, Revenue, and Bonding. She will serve as ranking member on the General Bonding Sub-Committee, the highest appointed position of the Republican Party on the committee. “Being ranking member on bonding is especially meaningful to me,” said Floren. “Within reason, I see the function of bonding as paying it forward – benefiting future generations with improved infrastructure and mass transportation, better educational opportunities, more jobs, better jobs, and a protected environment – cleaner air, purer water and preserved open space.” Camillo was assigned to committees on Banks, as well as Executive and Legislative Nominations. He was designated as ranking member on the Commerce Committee. “The new assignment on the Banks Committee will be a welcome role as I spent several years in the banking industry,” said Camillo. “I eagerly await the new session and my new leadership role within the House Republican Caucus.” Representative-elect Mike Bocchino is entering his first two-year term with the delegation. He will serve on the legislature’s committees on Energy and Technology, Higher Education and Employment Advancement, and children. “I am particularly excited about bringing my experience from serving on the PTA to the Children’s and the Higher Education and Employment Advancement committees,” said Bocchino. “I plan to continue to be a staunch advocate for education in Hartford as I was locally in Greenwich.” The 2015 legislative session will begin on Jan. 7.
