Posted on January 16, 2019 by admin


State Representative Noreen Kokoruda (R-101) recently received new committee assignments for her fifth two-year term serving the people of Madison and Durham.

House Republican Leader Themis Klarides has chosen Rep. Noreen Kokoruda to serve in her 2019-2021 leadership team as Deputy Republican Leader At Large, which provides for a stronger voice at the legislative bargaining table and gives her leadership responsibilities on the House Floor during floor debate.

Rep. Kokoruda was reappointed to the legislature’s Appropriations, Education and Children Committees and will also serve on the Planning and Development and Legislative Management Committees.

“I am honored to be the voice of the 101st District in the Capitol” said Rep. Kokoruda. “There will undoubtedly be many obstacles to tackle this legislative session, but I am ready and eager to dedicate myself to working on all the challenges that may arise within my committees.”

“Rep. Kokoruda offers incredible insight in crafting policy for her district and entire state. I’m honored for her to serve as my deputy. In difficult political times she is the leader within the House that brings people together and resolves critical issues for our state,” said House Republican Leader Themis Klarides.

The General Assembly convened on January 9th, for a five-month session ending at midnight on June 5th. In odd-numbered years, or long sessions, legislators must vote on a biennial state budget, which they must pass before they adjourn.
