Senator Bill Weber (Republican, Conservative), who represents New York’s 38th District, was appointed to the influential Budget and Revenue Committee and chosen as ranking member by the Republican Conference. Senator Weber is one of just two certified public accountants in the entire state legislature, an important qualification much in demand for this role. Senator Weber looks to reign in the out-of-control spending and high taxes contributing to the massive number of New Yorkers leaving the state.
Senator Weber was also appointed as ranking member of the Developmental Disabilities Committee. Assuring that the state does everything possible to help those living with disabilities is a goal close to his heart.
The Senator was also selected to serve on the Education Committee. Bill supports both public and private schools. He is the husband of lifelong public-school educator, Lisa Weber, and father of four public school students. As a successful product of Catholic schools, his real-life experience with private education has led to strong support for promoting school choice and parents’ rights to choose where and how to educate their children. Education policies that put parents and students first were key to his winning campaign.
Senator Weber will utilize his years of experience as a CPA and CFO for his other committee assignments to the Consumer Protection Committee and the Corporation, Authorities, and Commissions Committee, which mandates budget expenditures of New York State’s utility companies.
Senator Weber stated, “I am honored to be appointed to these important committees and thank the Republican Conference for their vote of confidence. I am looking forward to fighting for New Yorkers, especially those in my district, to keep their hard-earned money in their pockets, their children’s education under their control, and improved quality of life for all.”
