Sweeney will form veterans panel

The Senate will get a new committee this month, according to sources familiar with legislative transition. Incoming Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D-West Deptford) plans to take veterans issues away from the State Law, Public Safety and Veterans’ Affairs Committee chaired by John Girgenti (D-Hawthorne) and form a Military and Veterans’ Affairs Committee.  The new panel will mirror the one in the lower house chaired by Assemblyman Jack Conners (D-Pennsauken).
