30th Legislative Session

Committee Assignments – We’re off off to a great start!

Friends of Russell Ruderman understand that it takes experience, compassion and dedication to improve Hawaii’s “Human Services.” So it’s with great enthusiasm that we share the committee assignments for Hawaii’s 30th legislative session.

Senator Ruderman will be the chair of the Human Services (HMS) committee. Another progressive Senator with experience and dedication to citizens is Mike Gabbard who will chair the Agriculture and Environment Committee. Senator Ruderman will Vice Chair the Agriculture and Environment Committee. Senator Ruderman will also be a member on the Commerce, Consumer Protection and Health Committee.

In this expanded role Senator Ruderman will have the opportunity to help more people in Puna.
