The lonely Senate Ethics and Elections Committee

The Senate Committee on Ethics and Elections is meeting over in the Knott right now and discussing public financing of campaigns. Emotional stuff.

Which raises one of the overlooked changes in the House this year. There is no longer an Ethics and Elections Committee. The change came under House Speaker Ray Sansom.

But that's not to say the House does not care about ethics or elections. Those issues now fall under the Governmental Affairs Policy Committee, which is chaired by Rep. Carlos Lopez-Cantera, R-Miami.
