TRENTON (January 24, 2024) — Assembly Speaker Craig J. Coughlin has named Assemblywoman Pamela R. Lampitt to continue in her role as chair of the Assembly Education Committee for the new legislative session.
The Assembly Education Committee addresses issues concerning education curricula, school finance, school boards and districts, school transportation, students, teachers, tuition and student aid, as well as vocational schools.
“New Jersey schools are the best in the nation, and I expect our committee to continue the work we did last session to keep them that way,” said Assemblywoman Lampitt (D-Camden, Burlington) “We had great success in addressing teacher staffing, student health, learning goals, and funding for facilities. I look forward to continuing to work collaboratively with all parties to ensure that every student in New Jersey has a safe, healthy place to learn and grow.”
Lampitt will also serve as Deputy Speaker and vice chair of the Assembly Health Committee in the 221st legislative session. She has been a member of the General Assembly since 2006.
