“I am proud to be selected to serve on these important committees. The people of my district will be well represented by my participation. I am especially pleased to sit on the Agriculture, Banking, Tourism, and Veterans Committees, since these issues are important to the Hudson Valley,” Gipson said.
“In just his first few days in office, Sen. Gipson has shown the leadership and the drive deserving of these important committee assignments. I am confident that he will bring the voices of the people in his district to Albany,” said Democratic Conference Leader Sen. Stewart-Cousins.
