“It is my honor to be entrusted with the chairmanship of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Economic Development, and Small Business. I thank Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins for this appointment and for her continued leadership. This committee’s role has become particularly important during New York’s recovery from the economic effects of the pandemic, and it is a responsibility that I do not take lightly.
