Committee Chair Assignments House Speaker Richard Corcoran (R-Lutz) and Senate President Joe Negron (R-Palm City) announced their committee and chair selections for the 2018 Legislative session.

Notably, Speaker Corcoran moved 21 of the 27 freshman lawmakers into vice-chairmanships and replaced chairmanships of members who resigned. In the Senate, Senator Lauren Book (D-Plantation) has taken over the Appropriations Subcommittee on Environmental and Natural Resources while Agriculture Commissioner candidate Senator Denise Grimsley (R-Lake Placid) is now chair of the Agriculture Committee.
