Cormier removed from committee after arguing diversions
Just days into the 2020 legislative session, freshman State Representative Mack Cormier, D-Belle Chasse, has been removed from one of his committee assignments.
Speaker of the House Clay Schexnayder, R-Gonzales, sent Cormier a letter on May 11 advising that Cormier “will no longer serve as a member of the House Natural Resources Committee,” with no further explanation. The letter added that Cormier will retain his other committee assignments (Labor and Industrial Relations; Transportation, Highways and Public Works) and thanked him for his “past service.”
The 2020 legislative session began May 4. Cormier was present at the May 6 Natural Resources Committee meeting and absent from the committee’s May 13 meeting.
