January 6, 2012
Assemblywoman Jane Corwin (R,C,I-Clarence) is proud to announce that she has been appointed by Assembly Minority Leader Brian M. Kolb (R,I,C-Canandaigua) to serve on the Assembly Ways and Means Committee, which oversees the state budget process and reviews all legislation regarding fiscal issues including taxes and fees.

“I am very honored to have been appointed to the Ways and Means Committee,” said the assemblywoman. “I would like to assure Western New Yorkers that I will certainly hold a fiscally-conservative, pro-Western New York line as a member of this prestigious and important committee.”

“Assemblywoman Jane Corwin’s proven private sector background, commitment to restoring fiscal responsibility and firsthand knowledge of what it takes to grow and strengthen New York’s economy will be tremendous assets as she serves on the Assembly Ways and Means Committee. Families and job creators can trust that Assemblywoman Corwin will be a strong advocate and a powerful voice for public policies that promote lower taxes, less government spending and more private sector jobs for all New Yorkers,” said Leader Kolb.

In addition to her new appointment on the Ways and Means Committee, Assemblywoman Corwin will continue to serve in the Assembly Minority Conference Leadership as Vice Chair and as the conference’s sole representative on Governor Andrew Cuomo’s SAGE (Spending and Government Efficiency) Commission. Furthermore, she will continue her duties as Chairwoman of the Assembly Minority Steering Committee, which travels the state to meet with individual constituents, local government and civic leaders, business leaders and other organizations to ensure that their views are heard by the conference.

Assemblywoman Corwin also has maintained her position as Ranking Minority Member on the Assembly Corporations, Authorities and Commissions Committee, making her the lead representative for the conference on this important legislative committee and further strengthening her ability to reform and reduce the size and cost of state government. Additionally, she will be serving as a member of the Assembly’s Cities, Education, Environmental Conservation and Mental Health committees.

The assemblywoman said, “There is a significant amount of work to be done in order to further strengthen the economy across our state as well as regionally and locally. Reforming the reach and expense of state government is an important factor in allowing New York’s private sector employers to create jobs and give citizens back the ability to live the American dream. I look forward to continuing my efforts to create jobs, reform Albany and ensure that Western New York has a strong and clear voice in the Assembly Chamber.”
