8/18/2023 Casimiro selected for national leadership post
STATE HOUSE – Rep. Julie A. Casimiro has been selected to serve as vice chairwoman of the National Conference of State Legislators (NCSL) Standing Committee on Human Services.

NCSL is a bipartisan organization that serves the nation’s 7,383 state lawmakers and more than 30,000 legislative staff, providing research, technical assistance and opportunities for policymakers to exchange ideas on the most pressing state issues and advocating for the interests of the states in the American federal system. Its standing committees, composed of state legislators and legislative staff, allow legislators and staff to benefit from the experiences of other states in shaping public policy, experimenting with new laws, and managing the legislative institutions. They also develop policy on state-federal issues to guide NCSL’s lobbying efforts in Washington, D.C. 

Representative Casimiro is currently a member of the Standing Committee on Health and Human Resources, which will be separated into two committees effective Jan. 1, when she will assume the leadership role on the Human Services Committee.

“I am honored to serve as a leader on our committee. NCSL standing committees are an excellent resource for the exchange of ideas among legislators across the country. I’m very proud to help guide this important work,” said Representative Casimiro (D-Dist. 31, North Kingstown, Exeter).

Representative Casimiro is a deputy majority leader in the House of Representatives. She serves as first vice chairwoman of the House Committee on Oversight, as well as chairwoman of the Oversight Committee’s Subcommittee on Children and Families. She also serves on the House Education, Judiciary and Veterans’ Affairs committees.
