Assemblyman Tony Jordan (R,C-Jackson) today announced that he has been appointed by Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb to serve on the Consumer Affairs and Protection Committee.
“I want to thank Leader Kolb for the appointment to this important committee,” said Jordan. “From internet fraud and identity theft, to price gouging and the recent rash of car warranty phone scams, there are a number of significant concerns on the docket right now that call for immediate attention. Since I was elected last November I have tried to be a vocal advocate for consumer protection and I look forward to getting to work.”
The primary responsibility of the Consumer Affairs and Protection Committee is to develop legislation that will protect consumers’ rights and ensure them the opportunity to make informed choices in the marketplace. The committee is active, considering an estimated 200 legislative measures per session and its scope is expansive, with legislation addressing agriculture and markets, general business and personal property laws, as well as the uniform commercial code.
In addition, Jordan already serves on the Local Governments and Transportation committees and as the Ranking Member of the Assembly Minority Conference on two standing committees: Alcoholism and Drug Abuse and Oversight, Analysis and Investigation.
