'Community Affairs' disappears from subcommittee name as focus on growth management fades

Rep. Jimmy Patronis, chairman of the Economic Affairs Committee, said committees must exist based on their legislative workload. File photo by Ana Goni-Lessan.

What's in a name? Perhaps a lot less when it no longer includes "community affairs" -- aka growth management.
