HARRISBURG – In addition to serving as Chair of the Senate Intergovernmental Operations Committee, Senator Judy Ward (R-30) will serve on five other Senate committees during the 2019-20 Legislative Session.

Ward was appointed today to serve as Vice Chair of the Senate Health and Human Services Committee, and as a member of the following committees: Agriculture and Rural Affairs, Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure, Law and Justice and State Government.

Ward said that the committee appointments will help her address the needs of her constituents.
