TRENTON (January 30, 2024) —Assembly Speaker Craig J. Coughlin has appointed Assemblyman Chris Tully to continue as Chairman of the Assembly Science, Innovation and Technology Committee in the new legislative session. Assemblyman Tully previously chaired this committee in the 220th legislative session.
The Assembly Science, Innovation and Technology Committee is tasked with developing New Jersey’s innovation ecosystem and priming the State to be the best place for entrepreneurial and scientific trailblazers to make advancements in burgeoning Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields.
