The newly formed Tourism committee will be chaired by Senator Gilbert Kahele of Hilo.

Legislative officials say the new assignments maximize the skills and interests of members, while providing a greater opportunity to focus on individual subject areas and take on greater leadership roles.

The change in committee assignments takes effect today.
