Constance N. Johnson Officially Takes Office November 26

“We’re expecting big things from Senator Johnson. Her 23 years of experience as a member of the Senate staff give have prepared her to take the next step in her public service career. I’m looking forward to working with her in the coming session,” Morgan said.
The Senate leader also announced Thursday that Johnson has been named as a member of the Education, Judiciary, Health and Human Resources, Public Safety and Homeland Security, and Retirement and Group Health Committees, as well as, the Appropriations Sub-Committee on Health and Social Services.
As chairwoman of the Appropriations Sub-Committee on Select Agencies, Johnson will oversee the budget review for non-appropriated state agencies.
