Simcha Felder to Chair Existing Committee and New Sub Committee in NYS Senate

3

felderNewly elected State Sen. Simcha Felder, a Brooklyn Democrat, according to a source, will chair the newly-created subcommittee on NYC education, and also the Children and Families Committee, which is currently chaired by a member of the IDC, Sen. Diane Savino.

These committees mesh well with Felder’s main concerns, which include obtaining and maintaining public funds for tuition and busing at yeshivos in the frum communities in his district.

It is interesting to note that none of the Republicans who have been doing double duty by chairing two committees were required to give up a position for Felder, though it remains to be seen exactly who got what in the end – especially since there are now five IDC members (thanks to the recent addition of Queens Democratic Sen. Malcolm Smith) to take care of.
