Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) was re-appointed as Assistant Minority Leader as well as Minority Ranker of the Assembly’s Veterans’ Affairs Committee.  Hawley also announced that he was re-appointed to the Agriculture, Insurance and Ways and Means Committees.

            “I am honored to serve in our conference’s leadership once again,” Hawley said.  “Our members and leadership are tremendously devoted to crafting the best public policy possible and I am motivated to get back to work.  Furthermore, as a veteran, I am proud to serve as Ranking Member of the Veterans’ Affairs Committee.  I have always sought to protect the rights of veterans and advocate for them in Albany.  My years in the military have given me the knowledge and experience to meaningfully contribute to the policy process.  I look forward to heading back to Albany to continue working for veterans during this year’s session.”

            Hawley, a veteran of the U.S. Army National Guard and U.S. Army Reserves, has served in the legislature since 2006 and as Assistant Minority Leader since 2013.  The 2015 Legislative Session opened on Wednesday, January 7, when members took their oaths of office in the Assembly Chamber and Assemblymen Sheldon Silver and Brian Kolb were elected to the positions of Speaker and Minority Leader, respectively.
