DARIEN, Conn. — State Rep. Terrie Wood, a Republican from Darien, has been assigned to three legislative committees for the upcoming legislative session, which begins Jan. 7.
Wood, who is in her fourth term, will serve on the Human Services; Regulations Review; and Finance, Revenue and Bonding committees.
The appointments were made by state House Republican leader Themis Klarides. He also awarded Wood with the title of Assistant Republican Leader, which means Wood will work closely with Klarides on caucus issues.
Wood will also return to her role as Ranking Member on the legislature’s Human Service Committee, which handles all matters relating to the Department of Social Services and the Department of Children and Families.
“I look forward to my new role within the caucus as well as continuing my work as Ranking Member on Human Services,” said Wood.
The Regulations Review committee examines federal regulations that apply to state agencies. However, the prime responsibility of the committee is to make sure the state regulations that are written match the legislative intent.
Wood’s role on the Finance, Revenue, and Bonding committee is to oversee all matters relating to finance, revenue, capital bonding, fees and taxation.
The committee is also responsible for employer contributions for unemployment compensation and all matters relating to the Department of Revenue Services and the revenue aspects of the Division of Special Revenue.
