TRENTON (January 24, 2024) — Assembly Speaker Craig J. Coughlin has named Assemblyman Herb Conaway to continue as chair of the Assembly Health Committee for the new legislative session.
The Assembly Health Committee is responsible for the oversight of health care policy. The committee focuses on legislation that works to prevent disease, promote well-being at all life stages, and encourage informed choices that enrich the quality of life for residents and communities.
“I am eager to get to work to advance more legislation that will improve the health of New Jerseyans,” said Assemblyman Conaway (D-Burlington). “I look forward to building upon the accomplishments of last session, when we improved access to care by cutting insurance company red tape and advanced the healthcare of mothers and their babies.”
Conaway also serves as Deputy Speaker and has been a member of the General Assembly since 1998.
