House Democrats chose their leaders today, and committee chairs were assigned.
There are a couple of re-assignments of note. #1: Chris Caruso is no longer the co-chair of Government Administration and Elections, replaced by James Spallone. Caruso is now chair of Regulations Review–which seems kind of like a demotion. Caruso was also made deputy majority caucus chair–whatever the heck that means.
#2: Steve Fontana is out as the chair of the energy committee, replaced by Vicki Nardello. Fontana moves over to chairing the Insurance and Real Estate committee, which may be a bit more high-profile this session given the housing crunch.
