BOSTON – Sen. Don Humason, R-Westfield, has been named assistant minority leader of the Massachusetts Senate.
The recent appointment was made by Senate Majority Leader Bruce Tarr, R-Gloucester.
“I am honored that Minority Leader Tarr appointed me to this new position, and I am excited to take on the new roles and responsibilities that come with it,” Humason said.
“I look forward to working with my colleagues in the Republican caucus to develop an agenda in the Senate that will best serve families and businesses in my district and across the commonwealth,” said Humason, who was previously Senate minority whip.
Meanwhile, Humason has retained his seat on the powerful Senate Committee on Ways and Means, which is responsible for crafting the state’s annual budget and vetting legislation as it nears completion.
Humason represents the 2nd Hampden and Hampshire District communities of Agawam, Easthampton, Granville, Holyoke, Montgomery, Russell, Southampton, Southwick, Tolland, Westfield, and parts of Chicopee.
