Should the Legislature eliminate some committees?

New Republican Senate President Kevin Raye has proposed eliminating the Legislature’s Labor Committee. Is he trying to freeze out the concerns of working people? Or does this move represent a timely reassessment of the Legislature’s concerns and focus? Are there any other committee elimination or consolidation you would propose? Marine Resources with Inland Fisheries and Wildlife? Judiciary with Public Safety?
