Senate Republicans Announce New Committee Chairmen, Vice-Chairmen



Senator Max Wise (R-Campbellsville) has been named the new chairman of the Senate Standing Committee on Education. The Committee’s former chairman, Senator Mike Wilson (R-Bowling Green) relinquished his chairmanship when he was elected to Senate Leadership earlier this year as the Majority Caucus Whip. Senator Steve West (R-Paris) has assumed Senator Wise’s previous role as the vice-chairman of the Education Committee.

“These new changes to chairmanships and vice-chairmanships in our caucus are a result of adding Senator Mike Wilson to our leadership team,” Senate President Robert Stivers (R-Manchester) said. “We are fortunate in the Senate Majority Caucus to have such a deep bench of competent legislators to step up and take on new challenges for the Commonwealth of Kentucky. I am certain that each new chairman and vice-chairman possesses the skills and work ethic to lead their committees effectively.”

With Senator Wise taking over as the Education Committee Chair, Senator Steve Meredith (R-Leitchfield) has taken over as the co-chair of the Government Contract Review Committee, while Senator Wil Schroder (R-Wilder) is the new chairman of the Enrollment Committee. Senator Rick Girdler (R-Somerset) was named the new vice-chairman of the Senate Standing Committee on Economic Development, Tourism, and Labor.

The Senate Committee on Committees will officially confirm these new chairmanships upon the next time the Senate convenes.
