The Grafton Republican will join fellow legislators on the committee, led by Chairman Christopher Markey and Vice Chairman Daniel Cullinane. It is the duty of the committee on Ethics to consider all violations of rules and all questions of conduct of Representatives, report any recommendations relative to it, and recommend any changes in the rules which tend to facilitate the business of the House.
Legislative Committees allow members to focus on specific issues coming before the Legislature and preside over hearings regarding legislation. Members of the Minority Party in the House of Representatives receive their committee assignments for House and Joint committees from the House Minority Leader. Members of the Majority Party receive their assignments from the Speaker of the House.
“Rep. Muradian has done a tremendous job representing the residents of the 9th Worcester District while serving on a number of important legislative committees,” said House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. (R-North Reading). “Now more than ever, it is imperative that we have individuals with strong character on key committees. I am confident David will bring the same sense of hard work and dedication to his new role as a member of the House Ethics Committee.”
Muradian said, “I am honored to have been appointed to the House Committee on Ethics by Representative Jones. I look forward to working with my colleagues and ensuring the House of Representatives operates with an effective code of conduct.”
Muradian also serves on the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security, the Joint Committee on Elder Affairs, and the Joint Committee on Municipalities and Regional Government.
